This makes me very sad. But what a lovely lady. One of my prized possessions is a copy of A Ring of Endless Light that my Dad got me at an ALA conference ages ago. Madeleine L’Engle was signing books, and she inscribed mine “To Kate, be a Light-Bearer…” While I liked the Wrinkle in Time books, I adored the Austins, and read my copy of Ring of Endless Light until it fell apart. I have to get my brother to fix it for me.
Rest in Peace, Madeleine.
