Rylee Brachle, the National American Miss New Mexico 2023, is a dedicated Global Give-A-Book volunteer and supporter. Having read for our Lavender Libros program at the 2023 Lavender Libros in the Sky hosted at the Anderson Abruzzo International Balloon Museum.

As Rylee passes on the crown and title of Miss New Mexico, we are excited to welcome Karyn Dodier as the 2024 National American Miss New Mexico. Karyn, with her diverse background in technology and storytelling, will continue the NAMNM tradition of promoting youth literacy alongside GGAB.
