A new online book club was created by the Friends of the National Conservation Training Center to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Rachel Carson’s birth. The books chosen will focus on the life and work of Rachel Carson including her role as a female leader in science and government.
Beginning in March and continuing through November 2007, book club participants will read specific books by and about Rachel Carson, then use an online discussion board to intersect thoughts and ideas. Each month features a distinguished guest moderator who shares insights and comments on the text.
