Dare to be Creative! A Lecture Presented at the Library of Congress (Washington, DC, November 16, 1983).
L'Engle, Madeleine
This publication forms part of a program aimed at stimulating public interest in books, reading, and the written word and contains a lecture which was originally presented at the Library of Congress as a major contribution to the annual celebration of National Children's Book week. After an introduction by Sybille Jagusch, the lecture begins with the question, "Do I dare disturb the universe?" from the poem, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T. S. Eliot. Using the term "disturber of the universe" as the basic theme, the lecture goes on to discuss censorship, the reading of children's books, writing fiction, love, and friendship. (EL)
