Book Group: A Wrinkle in Time

  • GHCL Annex 7306 Southwest Oleson Road Portland, OR, 97223 United States (map)

This book group is discussing A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.  Ask in library for available copies.

Synopsis:  An allegorical fantasy in which a group of young people are guided through the universe by Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which and Mrs. What -- women who possess supernatural powers. They traverse fictitious regions, meet and face evil and demonstrate courage at the right moment. Religious allusions are secondary to the philosophical struggle designed to yield the meaning of life and one's place on earth. Young Meg's willingness to face IT in the form of a black east in order to save a dear friend is one sign of her growing awareness. Readers who relish symbolic reference may find this trip through time and space an exhilarating experience, and the rest will be forced to ponder the double entendres.
