Waubonsee Faculty Member Publishes Work

“Eve Dreams,” a poem by Waubonsee Community College Associate Professor of English Billy Clem, of DeKalb, is included in the recently published “Adrienne Rich: A Tribute Anthology.” 

“Rich, whose work I teach in Multicultural Literature and Women's Literature, was a publishing U.S. feminist poet for more than 60 years, and her importance to world literatures and women’s studies is immense and profound,” Clem said. “I have admired Rich’s poetry and poetics in all their manifestations since I was a young college student, and being able to write and publish something to honor her life, work and legacy is a privilege.”

Adrienne Rich died on March 27 at the age of 82.
