When I think about A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine l’Engle, so many thoughts go through my head – about how I felt when I read it as a kid and how I feel about it now. It’s a true classic and an amazing piece of art.
I am honored to host the A Wrinkle in Time: 50 Years, 50 Days, 50 Blogs Tour and even more excited to share with you my A Wrinkle in Time Playlist.
A Wrinkle in Time Playlist
The ideas of space, love, coming of age, good vs. evil, self-acceptance and spirituality inspired my playlist below.
Just click on the numbered list of songs below to hear my Wrinkle in Time playlist. Be sure to turn your volume on song #6 – Time by Hans Zimmer. It takes a few a seconds to get louder.
