Tomorrow (September 6) marks the seventh anniversary of the death of Madeleine L’Engle.

Madeleine L’Engle is one of my favorite writers and If it were not for her work, I probably would never have met my wife!

    These are fabulous. Thanks so much for posting them. I miss her!! Went to hear her speak twice, once following her to England when my middle daughter graduated from college. (We went in honor of her graduation to a C.S. Lewis conference at which M. L’E. and Luci Shaw were our favorite speakers of way too many!) She has changed more lives than most of us will ever know and I am grateful. Thank YOU for collecting these here.

    Thank you so much for posting the videos. I was at St John the Divine last fall and thought much about Madeleine working there. What would it have been to be there back then?!

  • Wow, there is so much beauty just in the words she speaks! Would love such a peaceful and colorful place to write, no wonder she made such beautiful art.
