My name is Lila Quintero Weaver. I am the author-illustrator of a graphic memoir and a children’s book.  Here’s a quick introduction to my work.

  • Also available: Cuarto oscuro: Recuerdos en blanco y negro, the Spanish edition of Darkroom. Click here for interior views. Both versions were published through the University of Alabama Press. 
  • In 2018, My Year in the Middle, a novel for young readers, was published by Candlewick Press. For details, go to this page
