Mañana Means Heaven By Tim Z. Hernandez

Called a “love story of impossible odds,” award-winning writer Tim Z. Hernandez deftly combines fact and fiction from love letters and interviews to tell the true story of Jack Kerouac's “Mexican Girl,” Beatrice Franco. 

Join us for lively discussion on great works of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction inspired by the vast and varied experiences of the American West. We meet the first Tuesday of every month in the Library Portal at the Briscoe Museum.

Admission is FREE.

Briscoe Book Club is a collaboration between the Briscoe Western Art Museum and San Antonio Public Library.San Antonio Public Library logo
