According to CNN, (cnn.com) the author of several award winning books for children passed away this Thursday of natural causes.
I distinctly remember the first time I read A Wrinkle in Time and how interesting and challenging I found it to be at that age. Having recently reread the whole series because my two older kids wanted to read them, I was amazed at how well the books held up some 30 years after I first read them.
RIP Ms. L'Engle.

CNN (cnn.com) is reporting that one of my all time favorite writers, Stanislaw Lem, has passed away. I was probably 10 or 11 when I found a copy of Solaris in my dad's library and was absolutely blown away by it.
