Good-bye to Ms. L'Engle

I only found out today.

Madeleine L'Engle died last week.

She's one of those writers who...I'm so used to going to the bookstore and the library and seeing her books. It's a little strange, but comforting I suppose, to think the books will still be there, even though she's not.

I learned this through the blogs of Jenny Rappaport and Jennifer Jackson (links on the side).

Ms. Jackson also included this link on her post: Obituary for L'Engle.

Rest in peace.
