Madeleine L’Engle: 1918-2007
Ms. L’Engle (pronounced LENG-el) was best known for her children’s science fiction book A Wrinkle in Time, which won the John Newbery Award as the best children’s book of 1963. By 2004, it had sold more than 6 million copies, was in its 67th printing and was still selling 15,000 copies a year. Many sequels followed, including A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, and Many Waters.
We offer our condolences to her family, friends, and fans.
