Madeleine L’Engle wrote many books for children and teens. A Wrinkle in Time (library copy) is perhaps her most famous book; it won many awards, including the Newbery medal, and is 22nd on the list of Most Frequently Challenged Books. It is a very, very good book, and although it came out a long time ago, it and its sequels are well worth reading.  Many of L’Engle’s other books are still popular with readers, of all ages.

L’Engle died on Thursday at the age of 88.
