A Wrinkle in Time

Samuel and I went to an event today celebrating the 50th anniversary of the book, "A Wrinkle in Time." There was a Q&A with several notable children's authors including Lois Lowry ("The Giver"), Katherine Paterson ("Bridge to Terabithia"), Rebecca Stead ("When You Reach Me"), and R. L. Stine ("Goosebumps").

Cool to see four great authors in the same place at the same time, and even cooler to be there with Samuel, who seemed to enjoy the event despite the lack of pyrotechnics or DeLoreans.

I was thinking, maybe he won't be a scientist or an engineer after all. Maybe he'll be a sci-fi writer. Whatever. It's just nice to sit next to him and see him happy.

  1. Back when Elise and Jake were probably 7 & 9 we went to the beautiful Wainwright House in Rye, NY to see Madeleine L'Engle give a fireside chat. They were enchanted (as was I!). That is an impressive list of authors you and Sam got to see in her honor!
