Hi all,

An acquaintance of mine who lives in Oaxaca is very involved in the Oaxaca Lending Library<https://www.oaxlibrary.org/> (OLL). They have a wee bit of extra money and want to develop their Spanish-language YA collection. They've been encountering challenges identifying and sourcing award-winning and/or high interest titles for teens by Mexican authors. (Latin American authors in general would be good, but they particularly want great teen books by Mexican authors.)

They are looking for resources, publishers, awards, title lists, anything that might help them in this pursuit. I've put them in touch with Latin American Book Source<http://www.latambooks.com/> and with MCBV<https://www.multiculturalbooksandvideos.com/>. OLL is in Oaxaca, but many of the folks involved in the organization travel to the US with some regularity, so it's possible that US sources would be of use. They are a volunteer-run nonprofit so funds are short - all shortcuts on shipping and other expenses will no doubt be appreciated.

Thanks for any leads, lists, or ideas!

Gracias en adelante,
