Lila Quintero Weaver was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but grew up in Alabama. She tells the story of her family’s immigration in Darkroom: A Memoir in Black & White (The University of Alabama Press, 2012). Cuarto oscuro: Recuerdos en blanco y negro is the Spanish edition. In July 2018, Candlewick Press will release Lila’s first children’s book, My Year in the Middle. Lila and her husband Paul have three grown children.

Dear readers, I’d love to hear from you! Please send comments, questions, or event inquiries to me at lilaweaver@gmail.com. My literary representative is Adriana Dominguez at Full Circle Literary.

My social-media hangouts are Twitter: @LilaQWeaver and Instagram. I also collaborate on the blog Latinxs in Kid Lit, which seeks to promote diversity in children’s and teen’s books, with a major focus on Latinx creators.
