AGA Book Club: Silent Spring

April 23, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

Considered the inspiration for the environmental movement, Silent Spring has also been dubbed one of the most harmful books of the nineteenth and twentieth century. Rachel Carson was a respected scientist and an award-winning writer when she wrote about the impact of chemicals on the environment and unleashed a storm of controversy that continues more than fifty years after the publication of her ground-breaking work. Join the AGA Book Club on April 23, at 7 p.m., when we discuss Silent Spring and its impact.

Held in conjunction with Flora and Fauna: 400 Years of Artists Inspired By Nature.
