In memory of Madeleine L'Engle

It's been a hell of a week, and I'm just catching up on the news and my blog-reading.

Saw over at Chap's place that Madeleine L'Engle had died, and this morning there's an obituary in the New York Times.

The obituary is good and complete, but I like the personal remembrance that Chap pointed to much better.

Aside from the good experiences I had as a child reading her intelligent, speculative fiction, Ms. L'Engle wrote me a short, kind note when I sent her a fan letter, giving me some really good advice.

note from ms l'engle

It didn't come with cookies or an autographed copy of her book... but then, I wasn't a neighbor like JPod.
