Abstract:

Madeleine L'Engle was a famous writer of fantasy for young people. Her best-known book, A Wrinkle in Time, has been loved by readers and praised by critics. But some people claim that L'Engle's books should be removed from schools and libraries because they endorse an occult, New Age philosophy. L'Engle herself was deeply religious and felt that her religion was always present in her works, but not necessarily in a form conservative Christians would agree with. Author Marilyn McClellan discusses L'Engle's life, work, and beliefs, and she looks at both sides of the book censorship debate.--From publisher description.
