73. Silvia Moreno-Garcia in Conversation

73. Silvia Moreno-Garcia in Conversation

Silvia Moreno-Garcia is prolific. The award-winning, New York Times bestselling author produces highly-original works across genres and worlds. Her latest, Silver Nitrate, is a fabulous meld of Mexican horror movies and Nazi occultism: a dark thriller about the curse that haunts a legendary lost film—and awakens one woman’s hidden powers. Perfect for fans of the big screen, horror or the combination of the two, the book suggests that sorcerers and magic may not only be the stuff of movies. We’re thrilled to welcome this singular author to talk about her body of work and most recent foray into the world of motion pictures. Moderated by Rob J. Wiersema.
