Contest! Win a Deluxe Edition of the 50th Anniversary Printing of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time! Today Only!

The Time Quartet’s Meg Murray is a brave, prideful, and stubborn female protagonist that I find more and more relatable as I grow older. The series contains some really deep musing on science, religion, family, and the usefulness of love, and then wraps up with time travel and flying unicorns. So, it’s really a perfect storm of tiny nerd girl interests, or at least it was for this formerly tiny nerd girl.

But nerd girls have been falling in love with a A Wrinkle in Time longer than I’ve even been alive, significantly longer, and this week marks the 50th anniversary of the release of A Wrinkle in TimeMacmillan Publishers have given us a copy of the 50th anniversary edition of the book, packed with never before published material to give to one lucky person. Find out how to enter after the jump, and act fast!
