Lisle library district welcomes bestselling author Silvia Moreno-Garcia on January 26


Best-selling and award-winning author Silvia Moreno-Garcia will discuss her books and writing style virtually at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 26, with the Lisle Library District, 777 Front St.

Moreno-Garcia’s bestsellers include “Mexican Gothic”, “Gods of Jade and Shadow” and his latest book, “Velvet is the Night”, which was named one of New York’s 100 Notable Books of 2021. Times.

Author Gus Moreno will join her in a conversation focused on Moreno-Garcia’s latest novel and an exploration of its cultural noir and Lovecraftian horror.

“We are delighted to welcome Moreno-Garcia as she shares her unique perspective with our community,” said Xavier Duran, Programming Librarian. “Its storytelling knows no genre, but readers can still count on heart-wrenching plots and characters one can relate to.”

The Lisle Library District offers this event through a collaboration with Illinois Libraries Present.

This new cooperative effort will bring best-selling and estimated authors to 200 libraries statewide.

“This opportunity would not be possible without Illinois Libraries Present, which shows the ingenuity of library workers to come together and pool their expertise to bring renowned and respected authors to our community,” said Duran.

The Lisle Library District has all of Moreno-Garcia’s books in its collection.
