Waubonsee faculty member publishes work

Published: Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012 5:30 a.m. CDT

“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.”

“(Adrienne) 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 in a news release.

“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,” he said.

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