A Wrinkle in TimeMadeline L’Engle’s classic tale of good vs. evil, A Wrinkle In Time, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. L’Engle weaves together a story that follows the unlikely heroine Meg Murray as she travels to another galaxy to save her father. On her journey Meg, accompanied by her friend Calvin and her little brother Charles Wallace, are faced with questions about the universe and the power of love.

It’s hard to imagine the Newbery Medal winning book being rejected by publishers, but according to a recent interview on NPR with L’Engle's granddaughter, Charlotte Jones Voiklis, A Wrinkle In Time almost never made it into print. Despite desperate reviews from critics, A Wrinkle In Time captivated young readers from the start. Currently 10 million copies are in print and 50 years after its initial printing, L’Engle’s captivating characters and challenging story continues to engage and delight readers.
