MañanaThis month’s #Bookhour Twitter chat will be on Mañana Means Heaven by Tim Z Hernández and Dr Niamh Thornton (@enortee), senior lecturer in Latin American Studies will be one of the discussion leaders. This is a fictionalised account of Bea Franco, Jack Kerouac’s “Mexican Girl”, and considers what motivated this young married woman from a tight knit community to have an affair with an Anglo traveller. The author has promised he will be tuning in and may even join the chat. To see the questions to be discussed, take a look at the US Studies page and follow the #Bookhour hashtag from 9pm on Tuesday or join in the discussion.
