Becoming Madeleine with Charlotte Jones Voiklis and Léna Roy Join us Tues., March 20, 5 pm as Charlotte Jones Voiklis and Léna Roy will be here to discuss their new book Becoming Madeleine (Farrar, Strauss, and Giroux, hb., 176 pp., $20). Charlotte and Léna are the granddaughters of the iconic writer Madeleine L’Engle. Using never-before-seen archival materials that include photographs, poems, letters, and journal entries, Becoming Madeleine weaves together an in-depth and unique view of the famous writer. It is a story of overcoming obstacles―a lonely childhood, financial insecurity, and countless rejections of her writing―and eventual triumph. Becoming Madeleine will speak not only to fans of the icon’s work, but also to anyone interested in writing. Charlotte Jones Voiklis has a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and manages Madeleine L’Engle’s literary legacy. She lives in New York City. Léna Roy works with young writers in Westchester, New York and Connecticut as the Regional Manager for Writopia Lab. She is also the author of the young adult novel, Edges. She lives in New York.
