Goodbye, Madeleine L'Engle

From PW: Beloved children's book author Madeleine L'Engle passed away last night at the age of 88. Her books were a big influence on me as a child. I loved A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door, (the other Time Quintet books hadn't been written yet) and I still have my copy of Dragons in the Waters with a bookplate proclaiming that I won it as a middle school reading award.

It's a sad year when we lose both Lloyd Alexander and Madeleine L'Engle in the same year.
