At Eisenhower, we’re excited to join libraries and readers across the country for the Together We Read digital book club.
From March 1st through 15th, Norridge and Harwood Heights residents can enjoy and discuss the exquisitely written, spell-binding psychological thriller, River Woman, River Demon by Jennifer Givhan, for free with no waitlists or holds. Readers with valid Eisenhower library cards can access the ebook by visiting mediaondemand.org or by downloading the Libby app.
Award-winning Mexican-American and Indigenous author Jennifer Givhan weaves together folk magick with personal and cultural empowerment—perfect for fans of Mexican Gothic.
Eva Santos Moon is a burgeoning Chicana artist who practices the ancient, spiritual ways of brujería and curanderisma, but she’s at one of her lowest points—suffering from disorienting blackouts, creative stagnation, and a feeling of disconnect from her magickal roots. When her husband, a beloved university professor and the glue that holds their family together, is taken into custody for the shocking murder of their friend, Eva doesn’t know whom to trust—least of all, herself. She soon falls under suspicion as a potential suspect, and her past rises to the surface, dredging up the truth about an eerily similar death from her childhood.
During Together We Read, River Woman, River Demon can be read without waitlists or holds on the Libby app on all major computers and devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets and Chromebooks. Through Libby, readers can also “send to Kindle.”
