Influential children's book author dies

Sad news today that Madeleine L'Engle, author of many novels including the classic A Wrinkle in Time, has died. In the age of Harry Potter, do kids still read L'Engle? They should. Her characters are inspirational, especially for girls, and no less magical than Harry and his friends. A Wrinkle in Time came out in 1962 and it was one of the first books I read that my mom read when she was my age. Kids can't say that about Harry Potter yet.
