RIP Madeleine L’Engle

Publishers Weekly is reporting that L'Engle died last night:


Author Madeleine L’Engle died last night in Connecticut, at the age of 89. Best known for her 1963 Newbery Award winner A Wrinkle in Time and its sequels, L’Engle was the author of more than 60 books for adults and young readers, most of which were published by FSG. This spring, the Square Fish imprint of Holtzbrinck reissued L'Engle's Time Quintet in new editions.


One of my first exposures to the concept of hyperspace was through her book "A Wrinkle in Time." I have an autographed hardcover copy, which I got signed one year at the New York is Book Country street fair. I had the chance to thank her.
