Today, I am excited to be taking part in the 50 Years, 50 Days, 50 Blogs Tour in celebration of the 50th anniversary of A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.
When I was asked to create an alternate cover for A Wrinkle in Time, it seemed like a daunting task. Such a well-known and popular book, I don’t know if there’s any way to do it justice, mostly because I love the original cover from when it was published 50 years ago so much. For my cover, I chose to showcase a tesseract (a wrinkle in time) in which the characters are able to travel through space and time. I’m also fairly sure a Newbury award shouldn’t be sliced into, but you can’t control those tesseracts!

“When they cast a diva, they are looking for a woman who men want to die for.”
As a rising star of the international opera scene and the best known Black Canadian dramatic opera soprano, Othalie Graham already has the kind of career that most aspiring singers would kill for. Touted for her rendition of Turandot, her Wagnerian repertoire is as impressive in its vocal difficulty as it is physically demanding. Graham notes that her career took off when she took off almost half the weight on her body, a loss of almost 140 pounds: it wasn’t until then that she was offered a role in Tosca. Graham says that the idea that a thinner diva is more resilient is misleading: “I could do those roles at any weight, but
