Rachel Carson Online Book Club

According to this news release from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Friends of the National Conservation Training Center is launching the interactive Rachel Carson Online Book Club (a blog) to mark the 100th anniversary of Rachel Carson’s birth. A different Rachel Carson book will be reviewed and discussed each month by guest moderators through November. Participation is open to all, and everyone is free to comment.

This is exciting news. The book club will be an interesting event to follow. Carson’s writings, especially Silent Spring, definitely had an influence on my decision to pursue a degree in wildlife biology, which led to a 37-year career with the Fish and Wildlife Service.

In related news, the Fish and Wildlife Service has posted this tribute to Carson.
