Summer Reading List Item: A Place to Stand

Thank you Esther Kottke for sharing this video on Facebook.

This is a teaser trailer for Jimmy Santiago Baca's memoir A Place to Stand. If you're looking for a non-fiction book to read this summer, this looks good.

From Reviews:
Anyone who doubts the power of the written word to transform a life will know better after reading poet Jimmy Santiago Baca's wrenching memoir of his troubled youth and the five-year jail stint that turned him around.

Congratulations also go out to Esther for being accepted to the High Desert Writing Project this summer. She will be as valuable an asset to them as she is to us. Hoʻomaikaʻi!
