Dare to be Creative!: A Lecture Presented at the Library of Congress, November 16, 1983

Library of Congress, 1 jan. 1984 - 30 pagina's
This publication forms part of a program aimed at stimulating public interest in books, reading, and the written word and contains a lecture which was originally presented at the Library of Congress as a major contribution to the annual celebration of National Children's Book week. After an introduction by Sybille Jagusch, the lecture begins with the question, "Do I dare disturb the universe?" from the poem, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T. S. Eliot. Using the term "disturber of the universe" as the basic theme, the lecture goes on to discuss censorship, the reading of children's books, writing fiction, love, and friendship. (EL)

Over de auteur (1984)

Author Madeleine L'Engle was born in New York City on November 29, 1918. She graduated from Smith College. She is best known for A Wrinkle in Time (1962), which won the 1963 Newbery Medal for best American children's book. While many of her novels blend science fiction and fantasy, she has also written a series of autobiographical books, including Two Part Invention: The Story of a Marriage, which deals with the illness and death of her husband, soap opera actor Hugh Franklin. In 2004, she received a National Humanities Medal from President George W. Bush. She died on September 6, 2007 of natural causes. Since 1976, Wheaton College in Illinois has maintained a special collection of L'Engle's papers, and a variety of other materials, dating back to 1919.
