March Meetup: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
For March, we will be reading A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. This is a great opportunity to re-read something from childhood or read it for the first time. It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger. “Wild nights are my glory,” the unearthly stranger told them. “I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract”. Meg’s father had been experimenting with this fifth dimension of time travel when he mysteriously disappeared. Now the time has come for Meg, her friend Calvin, and Charles Wallace to rescue him. But can they outwit the forces of evil they will encounter on their heart-stopping journey through space? A Wrinkle in Time, the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013 and continues to thrive. It holds the ranking by many critics as one of the most frequently banned novels of all time. The novel, which has been adapted by hundreds of schools as a stage production, will be released as a Disney major motion picture in 2018. Reminder: Time Tested is happy to order a book for you if they don't have it on the shelves - and it's easy! Just call or stop by... they put in orders on Tuesdays and it is often available that Thursday. Be sure to let them know you are with the Sacramento Women's Book Club. Don't forget! There is a $5 fee which goes to Time Tested Books for letting us use their great space. Please bring a dish to share with the group (whatever you like!). We mingle for the first 30 minutes and sit down for discussion promptly at 7pm. Thanks!
