January 8th We Will Be Discussing A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L'Engle

Elizabeth will be our discussion leader for Madeleine L'Engle's science fantasy novel A Wrinkle In Time.  The is a book that falls into our discussion category of books influenced by C.S. Lewis.

Your mission is to read L'Engle's book not only for the sheer pleasure of reading the book itself, but also to see how she has perhaps been influenced by C.S. Lewis.

Her awareness of C.S. Lewis is clear from this answer she gave in an interview.  SEE HERE

Has your fiction for children ever been compared with that of C. S. Lewis?
Yes, it has. I think that the main difference is that C. S. Lewis has more answers and I have more questions. I wasn't the right age to read him when he was being published. But my children grew up with him. I spent time this past summer at Oxford and Cambridge for a C. S. Lewis conference.

Come to the meeting and share your experience of the book and the relationship you find in assessing any influence of Lewis on L'Engle.
