Madeleine L'Engle (1918-2007) was born in New York City and attended Smith College. She wrote more than 60 books, the most famous of which is A Wrinkle In Time (1962), winner of the Newbery Award in 1963. L'Engle continued the story of the Murry family from A Wrinkle In Time with seven other novels (five of which are available as A Wrinkle In Time Quintent from Square Fish). She also wrote the famous series featuring the Austin family, beginning with the novel Meet The Austins (1960). L'Engle revisited the Austins four more times over the next three decades, concluding with Troubling a Star in 1994. The story of the Austins had some autobiographical elements, mirroring Madeleine's life and the life of her family. Madeleine L'Engle's last book, The Joys of Love, is a romantic, coming-of-age story she wrote back in the 1940s, that was recently published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

These are some collection. It's weird and unique. Not for everyone. It requires a lot of imagination and open mind perspective. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Ana Vanessa Bettencourt Almeida
I can see why many years ago this was a breakthrough series of books and beloved. But it is SO dated now and I just couldn't go on from somewhere in the middle of book two. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Clifford Harrison
