Bestselling author Silvia Moreno-Garcia discusses her newest book, "Velvet Was the Night," and her genre-defying mashups of cultural noir and Lovecraftian horror. Join us for an evening with her, 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.
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.
