Who is Alex Sánchez?
Alex Sánchez is a Mexican-American author of award-winning novels for teens and adults. His first novel, Rainbow Boys, was selected by the American Library Association, as a Best Book for Young Adults. Subsequent books have won additional awards, including the Lambda Literary Award. Although Sanchez's novels are widely accepted in thousands of school and public libraries in America, they have faced a handful of challenges and efforts to ban them. In Webster, New York, removal of Rainbow Boys from the 2006 summer reading list was met by a counter-protest from students, parents, librarians, and community members resulting in the book being placed on the 2007 summer reading list.
