Episode 15: A Wrinkle in Time


A Wrinkle In Time

In 1962, Madeleine L’Engle’s Newbery Medal-winning A Wrinkle in Time brought readers to bizarre (AKA creepy) new planets, challenged them with theories of physics and time travel, and introduced them to a relatable protagonist in 13-year-old Meg. This book is so beloved, in fact, that stars no less famous than Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and OPRAH were called upon to star in its 2018 adaptation!
