As you may have heard, the literary world lost two wonderful writers recently. Many of us remember reading books by Madeleine L’Engle growing up, and as one of our librarians said, “I recently re-read A Wrinkle in Time with one of my children. I was as charmed with it now as I was 35 years ago.” When news of L’Engle’s passing was announced a few weeks ago, the New York Times ran a moving summary of her life and works which you can read here
And then last week fantasy lovers lost Robert Jordan, author of the wonderful Wheel of Time Series. Mr. Jordan spent most of his adult life in Charleston, South Carolina. To learn more about his inspiring life, works and valiant battle against a rare blood disease, please see this tribute to him here. Mr. Jordan’s fantasy universe will be missed by his many fans.
