Silent Spring – 50 Years Later

September 27, 2012 marked the 50th anniversary of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring being published. The New York Times had a great article about Carson’s impact on the Environmental Movement – you can read it here.

We have Silent Spring available at the library if you’d like to revisit or read it for the first time. It’s certainly a powerful book.

We have other titles by Rachel Carson available, as well – prior to Silent Spring she wrote a fair amount about the sea.
