[plt-scheme] Local function definition

What is the prefered way to define a local function in pretty-big?

For now, my code is using the long winded form let/name/lambda. For example:

  (define (find-short-path graph red-nodes blue-nodes)
    (let ([get-siblings
                (lambda (loci)
                  (map (lambda (sibling) (make-loci sibling (loci-stack loci)))
                       (graph-adjs graph (loci-node loci))))])
       body ... )

The extra indentation is quickly pushing my code off the chart.
Is there a standard special form?
