Rachel Carson: Voices from the Margins...

The University of Kansas is holding a special event examining the controversy surrounding Rachel Carson, called Voices from the Margins. This will be June 7 at 6:30 pm at the Spencer Museum of Art.

"Please join us for an exploration of the change and controversy ignited by biologist Rachel Carson (1907-1964), author of Silent Spring (1962). The film, Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, originally broadcast as part of the award-winning PBS history series “American Experience,” chronicles reactions to Carson’s views and efforts to discredit her work."

I will be covering this since I have a special interest in Rachel Carson.

Update: Here's another Rachel Carson post on her upcoming 100th birthday. (Tip of the antennae to Rebecca over at Pocahontis County Fare for this post.)
