A Year of READING Dangerously — #90 A Wrinkle in Time
Maggie weighed in again, this time with her review of #90 on the list, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle.
I liked the female characters (well most of the characters actually). Meg is a disenfranchised character and I think a lot of people her age can identify with that. She exhibits a feminist perspective of the intellectual female who doesn’t always fit in with her peers. [– Maggie]
Reasons it may have been banned: Not really sure, but maybe for Religious View Point, Occultism, and some Violence?
Maggie recommends this book for readers ages 8 and up.

Freelance writer, graphic designer, musician, foodie and Jane Austen enthusiast in Northern Baltimore County, Maryland. As a writer I enjoy both fiction and non fiction (food, travel and local interest stories.) As an advocate for the ARTS, one of my biggest passions is helping young people find a voice in all the performing arts. To that end it has been my honor to give one-on-one lessons to elementary, middle and high school students in graphic design and music. And as JANE-O I currently serve as the regional coordinator for JASNA Maryland and am working on a Regency/Federal cooking project.
