Storytime: Rachel Carson


Watch our first virtual Pages of History Storytime program! This week, we are featuring Spring After Spring: How Rachel Carson Inspired the Environmental Movement, by Stephanie Roth Sisson, published by Macmillan, ISBN: 9781626728196. Learn more about the book here.

This story looks at the life of Rachel Carson, a biologist, conservationist, and writer originally from Springdale, PA, near Pittsburgh. In addition to her long career at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Carson is best known for her book, Silent Spring, which shone a light on the harmful effects of chemical pesticides on the environment. Her book helped create more awareness of human impacts on the environment and ushered in an era of laws that protected the land, air, and water.
