Madeleine LEngles long writing career began when she wrote her first story about a grul, or girl, at age five. LEngle spent her childhood bouncing between governesses and boarding school before she attended Smith College and made a permanent home in New York City. LEngle completed her most famous work, "A Wrinkle in Time," in 1960, but it was rejected by more than two dozen publishers before it came out in 1962. LEngles picture books, fantastic young adult novels, and Christian writing made her one of the most popular and recognizable authors in American literature.
