Tim Hernandez - Mañana Means Heaven

Colfax Avenue: Award-winning writer Tim Hernandez will read from and sign his new novel Mañana Means Heaven ($24.95 University of Arizona Press), a visionary portrait of Bea Franco, the real woman behind famed American author Jack Kerouac’s On the Road character “Terry, the Mexican girl.” Hernandez’s book deftly combines fact and fiction to pull back the veil on one of literature’s most mysterious and evocative characters. Inspired by Franco’s love letters to Kerouac and Hernandez’s interviews with Franco, now in her nineties and living in relative obscurity, the novel brings this lost gem of a story out of the shadows and into the spotlight.
