Madeleine L’Engle once said that “A Wrinkle in Time” was rejected by 26 publishers. On the surface, this seems incredible, given that it went on to win the 1962 Newbery Medal and become one of the most beloved of all modern children’s novels (in one poll second in popularity only to E.B. White’s “Charlotte’s Web”).
"‘A Wrinkle in Time’: Let’s Hope the Movie Is Better Than the Book" is from the February 27, 2018 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Michael Dirda and narrated by Sam Scholl.
