Listening for Madeleine: A Portrait of Madeleine L’Engle in Many Voices by Leonard Marcus

November 28, 2012 | None Yet - Post a Comment

From Publishers Weekly: In this insightful biography of beloved children’s book author Madeleine L’Engle (A Wrinkle in Time), Marcus (Minders of Make-Believe) draws upon dozens of interviews with those who knew L’Engle personally and professionally, as well as with representatives of “the thousands of students, teachers, librarians, aspiring writers, neighbors and others who crossed her path.” The result is both impressionistic and satisfyingly complex.

Anne Lamott talks about A Wrinkle in Time in The NYT

Did you see this? In the “By the Book” series in the Book section of the New York Times, Anne Lamott had this to say:

“A Wrinkle in Time” saved me because it so captured the grief and sense of isolation I felt as a child. I was 8 years old when it came out, in third grade, and I believed in it — in the plot, the people and the emotional truth of their experience. This place was never a good match for me, but the book greatly diminished my sense of isolation as great books have done ever since. I must have read it a dozen times.

November 29th is Madeleine’s birthday. This year on that day, The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine will be dedicated as Literary Landmark to recognize the church’s connection with Madeleine, who served as the Cathedral librarian for more than 40 years. The event, which is open to the public, is scheduled for 4 p.m. in the Cathedral, followed by Evensong and a reception.

The Literary Landmarks is a program of United for Libraries (formerly Friends of Libraries USA). Other landmarks in New York City include the Algonquin Hotel, The Little Red Lighthouse and Pete’s Tavern.

Here’s the NPR piece

This story ran yesterday on most public radio stations. Enjoy!

“Imagine, for a moment, that you’re a publisher hearing a pitch about a children’s book whose tangled plot braids together quantum physics, fractions and megaparsecs (a measure for distances in intergalactic space). The book also casually tosses out phrases in French, Italian, German and ancient Greek. Sound like the next kids’ best-seller to you?”
