    Children's author Madeline L'Engle dies

    I'm betting nobody else cares, but I adored her books as a child. She was an Episcopal nun at one point, and the crazy church in my school district tried to ban her books for promoting witchcraft, although the characters they were calling witches were actually angels. One just happened to be named "Mrs. Which."

    I'm a confirmed Episcopalian, and honest to God I didn't know we had nuns.

    You do, but they get married and don't live in convents. I grew up one Episcopal :D

    I'm unmarried, but I don't live in a convent.
    Does that mean I've been an Epsicopal nun for 30-plus years and didn't know it?

    That book scared the hell out of me, and still does. I have no idea why children are directed to read that. I still don't understand the concept of the tesseract, or why the parents didn't hold onto those kids.

    But RIP anyway.

    I hate most science fiction, but I remember really liking that book when I was a kid...
