Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature A public lecture by Linda Lear in celebration

A public lecture by Linda Lear in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Silent Spring

Published in 1962, Rachel Carson's Silent Spring did more than any other single publication to alert the world to the hazards of environmental poisoning and to inspire a powerful social movement that would alter the course of American history. As Carson’s biographer, Linda Lear speaks about Carson’s life, how she raised the public consciousness so that the environmental movement could take flight, and how environmental controversies of the past relate to current ecological issues. A public book signing will follow the lecture.
