Special Events

An Evening with Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Online Program, Wed, Jan. 26, 2022 from 7pm-8pm


Join us for an evening with bestselling author Silvia Moreno-Garcia as she discusses her newest book, Velvet Was the Night, and her genre-defying mashups of cultural noir and Lovecraftian horror. She will be in conversation with author Gus Moreno.

Silvia Moreno-Garcia is the New York Times 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, Silvia has edited several anthologies, received many awards for her novels, and is a columnist for The Washington Post.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration between public libraries offering high-quality events.
