Q

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

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!

Hey there. I am looking forward to read Crosswick's journal book "Summer of great grandmother". I cannot find its free download. I cannot afford the book and have read all previous books of Madeleine l'engle through free download but cannot find this one anywhere. I will be obliged to you if you can arrange a free ebook or free print of this book. Have a great day!

Hi Saba,

If you were able to download this book for free, those are pirated and illegal editions. The books are for sale by its publishers.

Of course, it's also available in libraries, as both print and ebook.

I would like to have a poster made of the cover of A Wrinkle In Time. What is the procedure for getting your permission?

Has "A Wrinkle in Time" ever been published in a Japanese translation? If so, what is the title? Is it currently in print? I read the original book in English long ago while growing up in America. Now, as an adult living in Japan, I'd like to read it again -- in this country's language, if possible -- before the movie comes out. Tom Baker

Hi Tom,
There was a Japanese translation decades ago, but it is no longer in print. We hope that it will soon be available again in Japan, but don't have a date or publisher yet. We'd love everyone to read it in whatever language they want!
