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 hold a poetry reading on January 27th from 3-4:30 PM in 4101 JFSB.

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
