Biography of Madeleine L’Engle

Madeleine L'Engle Young

Dear Ones,

Madeleine’s granddaughters Léna and Charlotte sent the final draft of their biography to copyediting this week! It will spend about 9 months in production, and you can look for Becoming Madeleine L’Engle: A Biography by her Granddaughters (FSG) in February 2018!

“I had a vile time in lessons today. In Latin. I hadn’t heard something Holmes said, and made a guess at the answers. She blew up and busted, then, and said she had never known anybody take in as little as Hazel and me etc. etc. Then I lost my temper too because I will not be called stupid, and stuck out my jaw and scowled at my book for the rest of the lesson.”
— February 16, 1933, journal entry
