To join, contact cassandra.osterloh@state.nm.us

“Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s Mexican Gothic is a thoroughly enjoyable, thought-provoking novel. The main character, Noémi, receives a strange letter from her cousin, Catalina, who begs for help. She claims her new husband Virgil Doyle is poisoning her, that ‘fleshless things’ and ghosts trouble her, that ‘they will not let me go.’ Noémi — self-assured, chic and stubborn — leaves the glamor of 1950s Mexico City for the countryside, still depressed after a mining bust and fecund with secrets, to determine whether Catalina needs rescue.” – Jessica P.  Wick, NPR.

Winner of an  International Latino Book Award. “The first time Isabel meets her father-in-law, Omar, he’s already dead—an apparition appearing uninvited on her wedding day.

Omar asks Isabel for the impossible: persuade Omar’s family—especially his wife, Elda—to let him redeem himself.” – Goodreads.

Live via Zoom
To join, contact cassandra.osterloh@state.nm.us

“Honest and unsparing, this book offers a detailed look at the dehumanizing immigration system that shattered the author’s family while offering a glimpse into his own deeply conflicted sense of what it means to live the so-called American dream. A heartfelt and haunting memoir just right for the current political and social climate.” -Kirkus Reviews.
