SHOW SUMMARY

Meg Murry and her little brother, Charles Wallace, have been without their scientist father, Mr. Murry, for five years, ever since he discovered a new planet and used the concept known as a tesseract to travel there. Joined by Meg's classmate Calvin O'Keefe and guided by the three mysterious astral travelers known as Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, the children brave a dangerous journey to a planet that possesses all of the evil in the universe.

 

A highly condensed, quite impactful epic, "A Wrinkle in Time" is not only an amazing kid-empowering work, but largely attractive to young adults alike. School Library Journal has called it “ a suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment.”

CREATORS
ABOUT THE CREATOR 

Madeleine_lengle.jpeg
MADELINE L'ENGLE
Madeleine L’Engle (pronounced LENG-el) was born Madeleine L’Engle Camp on November 29, 1918, in New York City. Her parents were artists themselves: her mother, Madeleine “Mado” Hall Barnett, was a pianist; and her father, Charles Wadsworth Camp, was a writer (known for mystery stories) and journalist. A Wrinkle in Time represented Madeleine’s first time creating a work of science fiction and fantasy (SFF) or science fantasy. Science fiction typically uses an imagined reality that expands from our everyday world to include extraordinary possibilities mixed with real or imagined sciences. Madeleine believed that “science fantasy is not far from fairy tale, that world which delves deep into the human psyche, struggling to find out at least a little more of what we are all about.”

FROM THE DIRECTOR

“Why do you think your planet has wars? Why do you think people get confused and unhappy? Because no one trusts anyone who’s different.” – Charles Wallace

 

It’s an idea that seems more and more relevant in the world today, when it feels like the “Black Thing” exists in our reality, and that it’s creeping deeper and deeper into our world. This is why stories like A Wrinkle in Time are so important for us to share. To tell and re-tell. They remind us the power of friendship, of family, of love. They remind us that our differences are our strengths.

 

And, to quote another notable author – “Even the smallest person can change the course of the future” (JRR Tolkien). If we learn to communicate like Calvin, be as accepting as Charles Wallace, and be brave like Meg, perhaps we, too, can defeat the Black Thing.

 

After all, “There’s nothing left except to try” – Madeleine L’Engle.
