Madeleine rarely wrote with a particular audience in mind, she simply followed the story, so it makes very good sense that readers of all ages would enjoy her books. Tesser well!

How did attending Ashley Hall shape you as a writer?

Hi Libby --
After years at schools where she was thought to be not quite bright and had a hard time making friends, Madeleine loved Ashley Hall. She was encouraged and supported by her teachers, found friends, and her writing blossomed. She wrote poetry and plays and fiction, and acted in school plays and edited the literary journal as well. An upcoming biography has a couple of chapters on her time at Ashley Hall. Check it out here: https://goo.gl/y2cBHh
Tesser well!

I heard it said once that Madeleine L'Engle said, "the church's best theologians are all eight years old." Do you know if that is written down anywhere?

That certainly sounds like her, but we don't know where that might be found. If you discover anything, please let us know!
