"I don't know if I would have lived had I not found poetry."--Jimmy Santiago Baca

The writer Jimmy Santiago Baca will visit Catlin Gabel this Thursday.  If you would like to learn a little bit more about him, here are a few options:

Visit the Poets.org website for a brief biography of Santiago Baca's life.  Three of his poems are listed on the Poets.org website in the upper right hand corner.  If you'd like to learn a little bit more about the writer, his personal struggles, and his approach to language and poetry, there is a good interview with Gabriel Meléndez on the Univ. of Illinois site.  

When you visit the Upper School Library, you can browse our display of books by Jimmy Santiago Baca just inside the door.
