Event Details

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

After receiving a frantic letter from her newly-wed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom, Noemí Taboada heads to High Place, a distant house in the Mexican countryside. But there are many secrets behind the walls of High Place, and as Noemí digs deeper she unearths stories of violence and madness. (Goodreads)
