Little girls in glasses have showed us how to save the world from darkness for years. The journeys they take as they come into their power showcase their everyday bravery, helping us recognize our own strengths. To mark the release of Ava DuVernay’s bold new adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, PEN America and the Strand Book Store will celebrate unconventional literary heroes with readings from Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel and related texts, presenting a canon of unorthodox saviors who invite us to examine the ways we can be heroes too. With award-winning speculative fiction writer Alice Sola Kim; National Book Award-nominated young adult author Ibi Zoboi; and Léna Roy and Charlotte Jones Voiklis, Madeleine L’Engle’s granddaughters and biographers.
