The Margos Discover that Not All Things Featuring Oprah Are Made of Gold
The Margos dive into a children’s classic novel–A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle and offer their thoughts on the 1962 novel that spawned four sequels and earned the love of millions of fans all over the world. The story of a plucky 13-year-old heroine (Meg Murry) who is smart, awkward and lonely due to her father missing for over four years has inspired readers for decades to truly be themselves and trust their instincts.
