Rachel Carson: A Celebration of “Silent Spring”

Carolyn Coit Dancy performs in a one-woman show as Rachel Carson. Fifty years ago, Rachel Carson sounded the alarm about the dangers of the uncontrolled use of pesticides in “Silent Spring,” one of the landmark books of the twentieth century. The outcry that followed the bookʼs publication forced the banning of DDT and spurred revolutionary changes in laws affecting our air, land and water.
