Illinois Libraries Present: An Evening with Silvia Moreno-Garcia (Virtual Event)

We are delighted to suppport Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration between public libraries, as they welcome bestselling author Silvia Moreno-Garcia discussing 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. Register HERE for this free event. 

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.

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

Illinois Libraries Present is committed to inclusion and accessibility. To request accommodations, please email
