Spellbound is thrilled to welcome Asheville native Hope Larson as we celebrate the release of her new graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel A Wrinkle in Time. In 50 years of publication, the book has never been illustrated. Now, Larson takes the classic story to a new level.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of WIT, Madeleine L’Engle’s estate approved the graphic novel adaptation and L’Engle’s longtime publisher, Farrar Strauss Giroux, chose Larson to take on this landmark project.
Leading up to our book release party with Hope Larson on October 6th, Spellbound is sponsoring an art contest for WIT fans at local schools. During the month of September, students in grades 4-8 at local schools can enter to win a FREE copy of the new WIT graphic novel autographed by Hope Larson. Details will be available at your school library by September 1.
Our event on Saturday, October 6th kicks off at 1:00pm. In addition to meeting Hope and getting a signed book, you can also participate in WIT-themed activities and enter a door prize drawing for a WIT 50th Anniversary poster. The winners of the art contest will be announced at the event.
The book cannot be sold until October 2, 2012, but we are taking pre-orders now. If you would like a signed copy but can’t attend on October 6th, we will be happy to have it signed for you and you can pick it up (or we can ship it you) afterward.
