VAN ALEN BOOK CLUB: SILENT SPRING BY RACHEL CARSON

15 August 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Organized by: Van Alen Institute
Venue: VAN ALEN INSTITUTE

New York

On Tuesday, August 15, join Van Alen Book Club as we continue to explore the planet’s changing climate with a discussion of Rachel Carson’s landmark Silent Spring, which is widely credited for launching environmental movements worldwide. When it was published in 1962, the book’s combination of rigorous science and lyrical language captured the public imagination and sparked widespread debate and concern about the indiscriminate use of pesticides and impact of technological innovation on ecosystems.

Registration is open to new and former participants of Van Alen Book Club, and dinner and drinks will be provided.
