| Humanities 2, Room 259 | Free

Ronaldo V. Wilson is the author of Narrative of the Life of the Brown Boy and the White Man (2008), Poems of the Black Object (2009), and Lucy 72 (2015). He is co-founder of the Black Took Collective, and is currently Associate Professor of Poetry, Fiction, and Literature at UC Santa Cruz.

Farther Traveler is an expansive, complex hybrid of poetry, prose, and memoir. Wilson writes of loss, desire, abjection and radical possibility, traversing and transgressing boundaries of genre to produce a searing meditation on race, sexuality, and contemporary culture.
