- Jimmy Santiago Baca, Poet
- Jimmy Santiago Baca is an award-winning American poet and writer of Chicano 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 has created a body of work which speaks to the disenfranchised by drawing on his experiences as a prisoner, a father, a poet, and by reflecting on the lush, and sometimes stark, landscape of the Rio Grande valley. He has a PhD in Literature from the University of New Mexico and currently lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
- Location: Zacariah's, University Center
