Madeleine LEngle is a famous writer of fantasy for young people. Her best-kwn book, A WRINKLE IN TIME, has been loved by generations of readers and lauded by critics. But some people claim that LEngles writing endorses a New Age philosophy and they have asked that her books be removed from schools and libraries. Author Marilyn McClellan discusses LEngles life and beliefs and analyzes two of her best kwn books. She also explores the history and present state of book censorship and helps readers form their own opinions about whether books should be banned.
