How fitting that a library was her favorite writing spot. When I think of her wonderful book A Wrinkle in Time, I can distinctly remember the corner of my small local library, bottom shelf, where I discovered the gem during my grade school years. Strange, the sometimes insignificant things the brain holds onto as memorable.
In the 1960s, a few years after the publication of A Wrinkle in Time, L’Engle, looking for a quiet place to work, sought permission to write in the Cathedral’s library. In an unpublished fragment of writing from around 1985, read by Voiklis at the dedication ceremony, L’Engle described how her relationship with the library came about.
