Bet You Missed It Column Editor: Bruce Strauch (The Citadel) Press Clippings — In the News — Carefully Selected by Your Crack Staff of News Sleuths Editor’s Note: Hey, are y’all reading this? If you know of an article that should be called to Against the Grain’s attention ... send an email to <>. We’re listening! — KS TOO DIFFICULT FOR ADULTS by Bruce Strauch (The Citadel) Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time has sold 14 million copies and has been adapted for TV and an opera. Everyone always assumed the evil planet Camazotz — where everyone is regimented to be the same — to be the Soviet Union. Now granddaughter Charlotte v oiklis has discovered three pages cut by the publisher that has the L’Engle world all abuzz. In them lies a warning that even a democracy can become too fixated on security and loose freedom. Woo. Can we say NSA? National Surveillance State? L’Engle had a hard time finding a publisher until she met John Farrar of Farrar, Straus and Co. Even he warned it would not sell. It was too difficult for children. L’Engle replied, “The problem wasn’t that it was too difficult for children. It was too difficult for adults.” COLD WAR SPIES by Bruce Strauch (The Citadel) LET’S READ ABOUT RISK by Bruce Strauch (The Citadel) See - Jennifer Maloney , “A New Wrinkle in Time,” The Wall Street Journal, April 16 , 2015 .
