Madeleine L'Engle

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.
