Madeleine L'Engle is dead. Her book, A Wrinkle in Time, was one of the first science fiction books I read. (I'm not counting little kid fantasy/fairy tales, although I read lots and lots of it.) At 9 years old in 5th grade, I bought it from one of those school cheap-book programs for kids (what were those called? I got so many books that way!). I picked it out on the description, already drawn to SF. I was immediately entranced by Meg, and her weird little brother ... I read that book probably dozens of times over the next ten years, and duly passed it on to my younger sisters.

I never read L'Engle's adult fiction, but she had a lasting and positive impact on me.
(I'm starting a new group to post threads and memories in honor of recently deceased authors: Authors In Memoriam.)

I read A Wrinkle in Time just before my precocious 2nd grader began to read it (yep, screening the book ahead of her). Who can forget Meg, Sandy & Denys and Charles Wallace?

Oh God!! I had no idea.... this sucks. I read those books over and over when I was a kid. Damn... R.I.P Maddy. You were an inspiration..
