North Carolina State University
On September 27, 1962, Rachel Carson’s famous book, Silent Spring, hit the newsstands. The book has been called one of the most influential works and Rachel Carson one of the most influential people of the 20th Century. Many people mark the start of the modern environmental movement—good or bad—with the publication of Silent Spring.
The book has been translated into dozens of languages and sold many millions of copies. Now, on the 50th anniversary of its arrival, NC State has the privilege of hearing from the world’s foremost expert on Rachel Carson, Dr. Linda Lear. Please join us for this significant event.
