A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle is one of the most celebrated children's books of all-time. As the highly-anticipated Disney movie adaptation hits the big screen, we bring together two authors to commemorate the event with a reading party.

Our guests Eve Ewing and Mary Robinette Kowal, who are both big fans of the book, talk about the story's unlikely hero and why A Wrinkle in Time is more relevant than ever in 2018. 

​The film is out across Canada on March 9, 2018.​
