Madeleine L’Engle on Aging and ‘The DaVinci Code’

Madeleine L’Engle’s book Walking on Water: Reflections on Art and Faith is one of the most important books in my life. Every artist should read it… every believer should read it… and anyone who’s ever been tempted to believe should read it. My passion to encourage artists toward excellence was largely inspired by L’Engle’s work.

Today, she’s talking to MSNBC about getting older, about Harry Potter, and about The DaVinci Code.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
