50 Years - 50 Days - 50 Blogs!


50 years ago, Madeleine L'Engle introduced A WRINKLE IN TIME to the world.

A new 50th Anniversary Edition is available with a special features including scrapbook photos, manuscript pages, foreward by Katherine Peterson, afterward by Madeleine L'Engle's granddaughter, and a Murry-O’Keefe family tree.

Macmillan is celebrating the Anniversary of this beloved book by inviting 50 blogs to discuss A WRINKLE IN TIME throughout the course of 50 days. During each of the 5 weeks, book blogs are discussing different aspects of the book.

I admit.  I have not read A WRINKLE IN TIME...yet.

Lucky for me, the good people at Macmillan have invited me to join in the celebration during Week 5: Feburary 13-17: Reading A WRINKLE IN TIME for the First TIme.  During that week, I will post each day with my progress, my thoughts and my feelings on this classic children's book.

I can't wait!

If you haven't read A WRINKLE IN TIME, join me the week of February 13th!

I have not read this yet either, so I will be following along eagerly. This is very cool!

You really should read L'Engles "Crosswicks Journals" to get the feel of who she was. I love those books. All of her fiction books are connected in some way, both adult and children's book.
I love her.
Have fun with your first read of "A Wrinkle"
(to be honest, it was not my favorite of her's. Maybe I should reread it)

So glad I'm not "the last one" to read this classic. My schedule won't allow me to join you on the February readalong, but I *will* get this read in 2012!
