Joys of Love Study Guide!
I am super excited to share with you all the new Joys of Love study guide on the Madeleine L'Engle website. It went live today! It has a very special place in my heart as it was my sister's and my "secret" as children - our grandmother's unpublished book that was just for us. It had everything a young reader could ask for - three different manuscripts with three different endings, theater, romance, and a hint of the adult world to come.
I love this particular study guide because although the book was written and is set in the 1940's, we are asked to reflect on today's world as well. Literature helps us to question the world that we live in and to see our place in it. I wish that more books had study guides, don't you?
So what are you waiting for? Get thee over to yonder Madeleine L'Engle website!
