2019 One Book Westwood
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
“A book, too, can be a star, explosive material, capable of stirring up fresh life endlessly, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”Madeleine L'engle
Madeleine L'engle would have been 100 years old this year, which is partly why we chose this book for our One Book Westwood. The Library, too, is one years old this year! While a lot has changed in 100 years, what hasn't changed is appreciation for a good story, and this one is exactly that.
It has won numerous awards and Oprah Winfrey recently produced the movie version. It's got science, it's got adventure, it's got interesting characters and doesn't feel dated.
This is an iconic book and in honor of our 100th Birthday and our summer reading theme of the Universe of Stories, we are encouraging all of Westwood to share their love of a good story and read this book.
Copies available at the circulation desk. Also available in audiobook, graphic novel and e-book formats.
