Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on September 8, 2007
“‘A Wrinkle in Time’ by Madeleine L’Engle. L’Engle died today. The idea of being able to escape to new places and meet fantastic creatures was great.”
“‘Harold and the Purple Crayon’ by Crockett Johnson.”
“‘Little House on the Prairie’ by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I could relate to the little girl Laura; she was part tomboy and adventurous and was trying to be good.”
“The Grimm Brothers’ tales. Those are wonderful stories. Of course I read them in translation. They are very warm, beautiful and beautifully written.”
