RIP – Madeleine L’Engle (1918 – 2007)

Posted by: Dave In: Books |Current Affairs |Spam Poetry

Madeleine L’Engle Writer, Madeleine L’Engle, died this past Thursday. I have very fond memories of reading her books as a child and thinking they were amazingly creative and inspiring.

From the New York Times

Her works — poetry, plays, autobiography and books on prayer — were deeply, quixotically personal. But it was in her vivid children’s characters that readers most clearly glimpsed her passionate search for the questions that mattered most. She sometimes spoke of her writing as if she were taking dictation from her subconscious.

Here are some links about her life and work:

Her Wikipedia entry
Her personal webiste
Her books on Amazon

God speed, Madeleine, on your final tesseract.
