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
hi my name is john conklin, when i was 6 years old in 1962 my kindergarden used to read from your book to uus ech day , i don,t know why i always remembered the title of your book when i was at such an early age' my daughter who is now 6 was with me in an target department stor an few months ago when she was your book, and recognized the title because i had told her about it and promised ii would read it to her if i ever was an copy of it again, it was like reliving it all over again at age 6,, although it has been over 50 years sent,s i heard the story i thought that the end of story was abrupt and diffrent than in the orginal boon published in 1962 book, i do not remember tesserating away from the it of gaint brain with out destroying it , it seemes that the story was shortned or changed ? i enjoyed the book very much, please respond, sincerely john
Hi John, Thanks so much for writing. Madeleine died in 2007, but she would have been moved by your story of sharing A Wrinkle in Time with your daughter. To answer your question, A Wrinkle in Time has not been shortened or changed since it was first published in 1962.
Hi Ma'am my name is Jhara and I am a great fan of yours! I've never read all your books because I still lack money to buy but among the books I read my most favorite book was "Troubling a Star." I don't know if it's the last of the series, so I'm just here to ask that if it is the last book of the series? Oh yeah, I'm really loving the way Vicky's mind works and her infatuation towards Adam Eddington, will Adam III reciprocate Vicky's feelings towards him? It's fine if you won't tell me if they'll be together. I guess if you don't tell me, it means that the readers must be the ones who will be thinking of their happy ending. Anyways, thanks again! I hope you get to answer my questions :) God bless!
Thanks so much for writing and how wonderful that you're such a Vicky person! Madeleine died in 2007, so can't answer your questions about what happens with Vicky and Adam. Troubling a Star is indeed the last in the series, and she never let on what happens. Seems like a ripe topic for fan fiction!
That certainly sounds like her, but we don't know where that might be found. If you discover anything, please let us know!
Wonderful! Tesser well!
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!
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 should mention Madeleine's husband Hugh Franklin. He was an actor and played the part on Dr. Tyler in the TV soap "All My Children.
I am looking forward to the movie version of A Wrinkle in Time. He daughter Josephine tells me that some of the grand children and great grandchildren have parts as extras in the movie. I find that so very exciting.
Hi Jamie --
You would have to contact email@example.com for that permission. But if it's for a classroom or other non-commercial purpose, let us know and we might be able to get something to you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
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
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!
