Madeleine L'Engle Dead at 88

Yesterday we lost a wonderful writer. She was a great storyteller and poet. Whether she was writing fiction or non-fiction, she had her own voice and inspired me. She wrote with such truth, understanding and gentleness, speaking of her life, her marriage, and getting older, just as openly as she wrote of the Murrays in "A Wrinkle in Time" and other books that followed.

Her unique voice will be missed. I hope you take the opportunity to acquaint yourself with her writing. I honor her.
