Remembering Adrienne Rich


The country lost an accomplished literary and cultural figure on March 27. Adrienne Rich’s works in McCain Library’s collections are listed here.

A moving obituary from The New York Times is here, with selected poems.

As ASC celebrates its Writers’ Festival this week, students are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to listen and talk with active writers. Library director Liz Bagley is grateful for the gift of being in an audience at Amherst College to hear Rich speak and read her poems during her own college years.
