She'll also give us insights into the production of what is anticipated to be one of the largest grossing films of 2018. Catherine Hand's journey with A WRINKLE IN TIME began when she first read the beloved novel as a young girl, dreaming of one day making it into a major motion picture. Years later, Hand met Madeleine L'Engle, establishing a lifelong friendship and earning L'Engle's trust as a steward for the film adaptation - an odyssey of perseverance spanning over three decades.
