We're trying something new here at Think Christian: an online book club for Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, which is celebrating its 50th year.
We hope you'll spend the next few weeks reading the novel alongside TC staffers and contributors. If you're on Twitter, you can keep up with the conversation by following #TCwrinkleintime. Some time around April 15, we plan to run a piece here on the site that will hopefully kickstart a good conversation about the novel itself, its history and its legacy as a work of Christian-influenced literature.
Some things to keep in mind as you read:
- How does A Wrinkle in Time compare to other acclaimed fantasy/sci-fi novels, and Christian ones in particular?
- Looking back, what do you make of the efforts by Christians to ban the book during the 1990s?
- If you haven't read the book since your youth, how was the experience different this time around?
