Stinson Reads Book Club

On the second Thursday of each month, the Stinson Library Book Club meets to discuss the book of the month and to choose the next book.

Current book club meetings are held through zoom.

Next Meeting: February 10th @ 6p.m.

Mexican Gothic is a feminist Gothic novel by Mexican writer Silvia Moreno-Garcia, who currently resides in Canada. Set in 1950s Mexico City and the burned-out mining town of El Triunfo, the novel is a horror-tinged thriller in which Noemí Taboada, a socialite with aspirations to become an anthropologist, goes to El Triunfo to rescue her cousin Catalina from the Doyles. The Doyles are an impoverished family of English silver barons who have united with a sentient fungus to ensure immortality for the family’s patriarch, Howard Doyle. The novel has garnered critical praise for Moreno-Garcia, a past winner of the World Fantasy Award and finalist for the Aurora, British Fantasy, Nebula, and Locus awards.” –
