Madeleine L’Engle Project

My Madeleine L’Engle reading project, with a goal of reading or re-reading her complete oeuvre, is ongoing. It started out as a project for January 2007, but I quickly saw that I’d need more time to read all of the books. Last year I posted an annotated bibliography of all Ms. L’Engle’s works. And I read and posted reviews for the following books:

The Small Rain

A Winter’s Love

Camilla, also published as Camilla Dickinson

I also read And Both Were Young and re-read A Wrinkle in Time, but I didn’t write about either of them here at Semicolon. I didn’t like the former very much, and I didn’t feel as if I had anything new to say about the latter.

This year I hope to read or re-read the following:

Meet the Austins, 1960
The Moon By Night, 1963
The Arm of the Starfish, 1965
The Love Letters, 1966
The Young Unicorns, 1968
A Ring of Endless Light, 1980.

As you can see if you’re familiar with Ms. L’Engle’s books, I’m concentrating on the Austin family stories this year. If I get all these read, I may try to get to a few more before the end of the year.

P.S. Suzanne has joined in on the project and is inviting others to do the same. You can sign up at her blog or here, and as she says, “Maybe someone could make a button?” Pretty please, because I don’t have any of that graphics talent stuff.

  1. What a great project. I may try to join you.

  2. This looks like an excellent project. Her book “A Severed Wasp” (an adult book) is excellent.

  3. This is a great project. There is a new (posthumous) novel being released this year – I will try to find some bibliographical info for you, all I recall at the moment is that I saw a new title in a catalogue this week.
