My name is Lila Quintero Weaver and this is my official author site. Thanks for your interest in my work.

COMING JULY 10:  My Year in the Middle (Candlewick Press, 2018), a children’s novel. 

Here is what Shelf Awareness wrote about My Year in the Middle: “Weaver, who previously published a graphic memoir called Darkroom: A Memoir in Black and White, writes vividly about the spaces in the middle, between black and white. Any reader who has struggled to find a safe and happy place between polarities will appreciate Weaver’s deep understanding of just how difficult–and rewarding–this can be.” (Read the whole review here.)

I’m also the author-illustrator of Darkroom: A Memoir in Black and White, and the co-translator of its Spanish edition, Cuarto oscuro: Recuerdos en blanco y negro. Both were published by The University of Alabama Press.
