Lisle Library District hosts bestselling author Silvia Moreno-Garcia Jan. 26

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

Moreno-Garcia's bestsellers include "Mexican Gothic," "Gods of Jade and Shadow," and her newest work, "Velvet is the Night," which was named as one of the 100 Notable Books of 2021 by The New York Times.

Author Gus Moreno will join her in a conversation focusing on Moreno-Garcia's newest novel and an exploration of her genre-bending cultural noir and Lovecraftian horror.

"We are excited to host Moreno-Garcia as she shares her unique perspective with our community," said Xavier Duran, programming librarian. "Her storytelling knows no genre, but readers can always rely on gut-wrenching plots and relatable characters."

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

This new cooperative effort will bring bestselling and esteemed 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 expertise to bring renowned and respected authors to our community," said Duran said.

The Lisle Library District has all of Moreno-Garcia's books in their collection.
