A Virtual Evening with Ann Dávila Cardinal
Enjoy an evening with Ann Davila Cardinal, author of Category Five and Five Midnights, about her debut adult fiction novel, The Storyteller's Death, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. This is a gorgeously written family saga about a Puerto Rican teenager who finds herself gifted (or cursed?) with a strange ability. Fans of the horror and thriller genres will enjoy this talk. We will stream this event live on the Houston Public Library Facebook page.
