Win A Wrinkle in Time: 50th Anniversary Edition!

By Patrick Luce Jan 27, 2012, 20:57 GMT

The classic A Wrinkle in Time has returned in a new 50th Anniversary Edition that comes loaded with bonus material. M&C is getting in on the celebration by giving away two copies of the 50th Anniversary Edition and a $50 VISA gift card!

Synopsis: It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.

"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."

A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school).

They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.

A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal.

The 50th Anniversary Commemorative edition features include:

Frontispiece photo
Photo scrapbook with approximately 10 photos
