Our fourth-grade teacher read A Wrinkle in Time to us over the course of a few weeks. It was captivating.

I just saw a used copy of something she wrote about Genesis in the store the other day; it may have been a collection of short novels, but I don't remember exactly. I didn't get it, though. Maybe I will.


I read A Wrinkle in Time as a child, and it meant a great deal to me, partly because I was a mousy brunette whose hair would never curl right on both sides and because I was picked on a lot, just like Meg, the heroine. I was an adult when I finally found a copy of L'Engle's Meet the Austins, a wonderful book about family life. I love it more every time I read it. I think she wrote her best novels in the sixties, when she herself was raising her children, but even the later novels had glimpses of the insight that made her stories powerful.
