Madeleine L’Engle died yesterday.
I’d write about her significance but I’m sure others have done it better. Still, I remember reading her books as a child and teenager, and, even as an adult. Despite being mostly categorized as books for children and “young adults,” her books are simply good books.
My personal favorites are “The Arm of the Starfish” and “The Young Unicorns.”
Interestingly, she attended my church on at least one occasion. I didn’t meet her at the time. I only know this because someone took a picture and they kept it up in the church for years.
