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!
No question, just a thank you. When our youngest son was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, you were so kind to write me back when I told you how the Crosswicks books helped me deal with that blow. I returned to them when Brian died, and again whenmour other son was killed. They helped me manage as I am sure they did for many others.
Thank you for this, and Madeleine (who died in 2007) would have been moved to know that her books helped you through such difficult times. Her own son died in 1999 and her writing and friendships were important through her grief. May you continue to find strength and courage.
Hello, i am trying to get a copy of A CIrcle of Quiet as a gift for a friend, & am happy if it can be an eBook. So far I have struck a blank from various outlets regarding this. Are you able to do so?

Oh, what a lovely gift! A Circle of Quiet is available as a paperback and an ebook, though we're not sure how best to procure one from Australia. Try Amazon, or perhaps your local bookstore could order you one?
Before we moved to KY, the New Castle-Henry County Library had a book in its non fiction children's section that you authored. It was about training dogs. The information seemed so clearly written that I thought should we had a dog again, I wanted this book. I don't know how to get it. Can you help me? Izziewesley@gmail.com.
Hmm. Madeleine never wrote a nonfiction book about training dogs. She did write a picture book called The Other Dog. Perhaps that's what you're thinking of?
Madeleine always said that she was very much like Meg, and the only other character that she identified as having been based on a real person was Canon Tallis. But she drew heavily on her own life and her observations of others for all of her books.
Love this question! A Wrinkle in Time is dedicated to Charles Wadsworth Camp and Wallace Collin Franklin. Charles, her father was a journalist, novelist, critic, and playwright. Wallace was her husband Hugh's father, and he was a lawyer in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Dedicating the book to them, and using their first names for one of her characters, was a way to honor and remember them.
