Environmental Book Group: Silent Spring
From 3pm until 4pm
This month’s selection is the classic by Rachel Carson, but we are sure that the issues covered will be an interesting juxtaposition to some of our current environmental and health issues. Carson utilized her many sources in federal science and in private research and spent over six years documenting her analysis that humans were misusing powerful, persistent, chemical pesticides before knowing the full extent of their potential harm to the whole biota.
White Birch Books has several copies of the book available, and are offering curbside pick-up to those interested. You can also order the book directly from their website.
