Madeleine L'Engle

Banned, Challenged, and Censored

Series: Authors of Banned Books

By Marilyn McClellan

Madeleine L’Engle is a famous writer of fantasy for young people. Her best-known book, A WRINKLE IN TIME, has been loved by generations of readers and lauded by critics. But some people claim that L’Engle’s writing endorses a New Age philosophy and they have asked that her books be removed from schools and libraries. Author Marilyn McClellan discusses L’Engle’s life and beliefs and analyzes two of her best known books. She also explores the history and present state of book censorship and helps readers form their own opinions about whether books should be banned.

Reviews

"The extensive back matter includes detailed chapter notes, bibliography, and questions for those who want to pursue the discussion."

Booklist, April 1, 2008

"Students researching book banning will appreciate this series that reviews historical censorship, provides each author's biography, summarizes the writer's most frequently banned books, and considers current issues related to the author's most famous titles."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2008

"In each biography, the authors do an excellent job of looking at both sides of the censorship debate while examining the life and works of the two authors . . . The comprehensive notes and additional information at the end of each book will lead researchers to more information and fans to a complete list of published works . . . these biographies will enhance collections through the biographers' exhaustive research and their well-drawn portraits of each author's life."

VOYA, December 2008

"She was a wife, mother, and grandmother who inspired many to read and to ask important questions about life."
