Join Vulture for ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ Book Club #SciFiSunday

28 wrinkle in time book club oprah w710 h473

In celebration of last Friday’s release of Ava Duverney’s film adaptation of ‘A Wrinkle In Time’, Vulture kicked off another round of their book club.

We hope you still remember us, Vulture book clubbers, because we’ve left the warm Italian countryside — Elio! Oliver! Peaches! — to head through the fifth dimension. Our next book-club selection is the classic children’s novel, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. Meg Murry is our hero this time around, a 13-year-old girl trying to solve the mystery of her father’s disappearance. With the film adaptation by Ava DuVernay heading to theaters this month, revisiting this fantasy seemed appropriate. For this second book-club outing, we’re reading the entire book in one go and reconvening again next week for our discussion before the movie arrives March 9. So go dust off your well-worn copy, or if you’ve never read it before, go buy it: Support the arts!

Hunter: Somehow I made it through primary school without reading A Wrinkle in Time, though I do remember having a discussion with a teacher who said the book had never been turned into a movie. I distinctly remember telling her there was a film adaptation, but I didn’t have a smartphone then, so I didn’t have Google on hand to fact-check me. (Come on — duh, I was That Kid.) To me, it feels cut from the same cloth as To Kill a Mockingbird or The Giver, and I’m not sure how I missed it. I don’t read a lot of fantasy books, though, so I’m curious to see how this goes. What’s your history with this book, Alex?
