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.
