The Joys of Love, Madeleine L'Engle

The Joys of Love

Some exciting news! For the first time, we’re sponsoring a “book club,” featuring The Joys of Love, Madeleine’s posthumously published novel about a young girl and the summer in the theater that changed her life. Educators, click here, and we can send you up to 10 free copies of the hardcover. If you’re an individual wanting to read along, let us know (follow the same link and look on the right hand side of the page) and we’ll give you access to a study guide and activity prompts, as well as invitations to share your thoughts and projects inspired by the book.

    I do not see a link on the right side of the page. There are no book clubs close to me and wondered how to join in.

    Hi Jan —
    The book club for individuals is “virtual,” and a first for us. Activity will depend on readers’ participation. You can use the study guide and post comments and questions to the forum. Thanks for your interest and happy reading!
    Tesser well!

    We had a busy summer at the Scotland Public Library so I’m just now getting around to promoting and distributing copies of The Joys of Love. Our discussion will be Oct. 5. I’m so excited to hear what my young patrons think of the story. Thanks for allowing us to participate.
