(This post is late - it was supposed to be on Saturday.)
Today I'm thankful for Madeleine L'Engle. I discovered while reading School Library Journal yesterday that she died in September and I missed it. She became one of my favorite authors in college, even though I still haven't read all her books.
I'd especially recommend Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art.
I spoke with her on the phone once, in college, as part of my Christianity and the Arts class. She seemed like a great lady.
