An Evening With Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Wednesday, January 26, 2022
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 will be joined in conversation with author Gus Moreno. Moreno-Garcia is also the 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.
