An Evening with Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Wednesday, January 26 at 7 p.m. CST | Zoom
     The bestselling and award-winning author of Mexican Gothic discusses her newest book, Velvet Was the Night, and her genre-defying mashups of cultural noir and Lovecraftian horror. Velvet Was the Night is one of The New York Times’ 100 Notable Books of 2021.
     Silvia Moreno-Garcia is the bestselling author of the critically acclaimed novels Certain Dark Things, Gods of Jade and Shadow, and Mexican Gothic, which Vanity Fair called “[An] irresistibly dark feminist reimagining of the Gothic fantasy novel.”
     Mexican by birth, Canadian by inclination, Moreno-Garcia has edited several anthologies and is a columnist for The Washington Post.
     Silvia Moreno-Garcia will be joined in conversation with author Gus Moreno. Gus Moreno is the author of This Thing Between Us. His favorite books are American Psycho, Battle Royale, and Under the Skin. He lives in the suburbs with his wife and dogs, but never think that he’s not from Chicago.
