Tonight's puzzle is an ultra-smooth 11x11 by Shannon Rapp called "¿Donde está la biblioteca?" We think you'll find it conversational and contemporary, with a sprinkling of "it's 2009" (iykyk).
Shannon says: "Hi solvers! Today's puzzle is an easy breezy themeless full of stuff that's meaningful for me. I want to hear what you liked about this one; you can find me on Twitter. Please also check out last week's Inkubator crossword that I wrote with my friend Rose who has a bunch of other awesome puzzles on her blog. I bet Brooke is about to tell you about the open call for new editors. I hope you apply if you have any interest in editing. Team Lil AVC X is the best 🙂 Happy solving!"
Indeed: we're looking forward to 2023, and are hoping to bring on some first-time editors! Constructors and expert solvers who are interested can check out what we're looking for here.
