My book club is reading A Wrinkle in Time for June, and because my to-be-read stack is so huge, I decided to re-read the Hope Larson graphic novel version for a change of pace. I love the original, and when I re-read it, I always notice that I remember it differently than it actually is, and that happens with the graphic novel, too. I don’t mind one bit. It’s wonderful both ways.
And then the other day, Becoming Madeleine landed on my desk at work – a biography of Madeleine L’Engle, written by two of her grandchildren. The perfect pairing? Oh yes! There are journals, grade reports, and pictures. For fans, this is a wonderful look into one writer’s youth and early adult life, and a reminder that even the best writers are rejected and unsure of their talent sometimes. A good reminder for all.
