Few authors have educated the planet as profoundly as Rachel Carson! Carson warned the world about the potentially dire environmental impact of chemical pesticides in her best-selling 1962 book, Silent Spring. In this living-history performance by Leslie Goddard, Carson shares stories of her life, including the love of the living world that her mother encouraged, her passion for writing, and her work to awaken the world to beauty and the fragility of nature. Carson was not only an early environmental activist, but also a gifted author whose words revealed the power of language to change the world by changing how humans view their place in it. **REGISTRATION REQUIRED.**
