New York, NY—January 16, 2020—LEE & LOW BOOKS is excited to announce Belen Medina Cabot of San Francisco, California, will receive the New Voices Award Honor for her picture-book manuscript The Seesaws. Inspired by current events, Belen’s story follows two children who live on either side of the United States-Mexico border and the creative solution that allows them to play together.

Belen Medina Cabot is a former lawyer who is passionate about social activism and child literacy. She hopes The Seesaws reminds readers of our common humanity no matter what side of a fence, wall, or border we happen to live on. Belen will receive a prize of $1000.
