Jimmy Santiago Baca is an award-winning American poet and writer of Chicano and Apache descent.

While serving a five-year sentence in a maximum-security prison, he learned to read and began to turn his life around, eventually emerging as a prolific artist of the spoken and written word.

He is a winner of the prestigious International Award for his memoir, “A Place to Stand,” which was made into a documentary by the same title in 2014.

He will be the featured guest at the English Reading Series on January 28th from 12-1:15 PM in the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium (HBLL 1060).

Baca’s visit is sponsored by the Humanities Center, the Harold B. Lee Library, the English Reading Series, and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Brigham Young University
