HARTFORD, Conn. - Author Madeleine L'Engle, whose novel "A Wrinkle in Time" has been enjoyed by generations of schoolchildren and adults since the 1960s, has died, her publicist said Friday. She was 88.

L'Engle died Thursday at a nursing home in Litchfield of natural causes, according to Jennifer Doerr, publicity manager for publisher Farrar, Straus and Giroux.


She was the author of A Wrinkle in Time, one of my favorite books as a child, and indeed I still read it occasionally today. I didn't really like the rest of her books..although it's been a long time since I tried to read them... but
A Wrinkle in Time is a classic. And you need to read this and NOT mess with the bad TV adaption they did a few years ago. Why do the nimnuls who do TV and movie adaptions always try to "improve" what doesnt' need to be improved????
