I own a copy

If you haven't read Wrinkle in Time in a long time read it again -- I just did -- especially the 50th anniversary edition -- it's a beauty. The language is so crisp, the quotations from Shakespeare, Goethe, Aristotle that are sprinkled throughout the book had a meaning for as an adult reader that they never had (or at least I don't remember!) as a young reader. I loved Meg, Calvin and Charles Wallace once more. And the search for one's father, for what it means to be grown up, and to know the power of love in this vast dark universe, resonates even more. It's worth buying this anniversary edition for the 'extras' -- the original manuscript of the first chapter as well as photos, essay by L'Engle, and introduction by Katherine Petersen -- as well the gorgeous physicality of the book.
