Literary Wrinkle

Author Madeleine L'Engle passed today at 88. She wrote many books, including "A Wrinkle in Time."
"Our truest responsibility to the irrationality of the world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find the truth." -Madeleine L'Engle

Do "these things come in threes?"
Vonnegut, Butler, and now, L'Engle . . .

I am a life long fan of hers, past, present, and for the rest of my life.

I have never read or heard that quote, before. Thank you for that.

Oh How I LOVED the Who, What and Where witches of A Wrinkle in Time. The whole traveling to another dimension. It was one of my favorite books in the Sixth Grade. Along with Mrs. Frisbee and the Rats of N.

Her book made a big impact on me as a kid. Loved that quote... thanks for sharing it. What a creative, loving, deep person she was.
