Author of one of my favorite books – A Wrinkle in Time. It would have been the To The Moon book of the year! It is one of the greatest books of the twentieth century – and stands up nicely with other classics such as Have Space Suit will Travel, Black Beauty, Rats of NIMH, Harriet the Spy, Mixed up files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, and other great and awesome books. She wrote over 50 books, and I read a lot of them. Read more about her life here.
