Step inside the revolutionary book that changed America, Silent Spring, as Rachel Carson reveals the reckless destruction of our living world. Written more than 50 years ago, Silent Spring inspired the environmental movement and has never been out of print.  Carson’s book introduced the expressions “ecology,” “reverence for life,” and “balance of nature” into our common language.  It inspired a nation to proclaim, as Carson said, “our fundamental right to a healthy environment.”  And it etched on our national consciousness Jean Rostand’s words:  “The obligation to endure gives us the right to know.”

Caroline McIntyre will appear as Rachel Carson and speak in Carson’s profound, prophetic and poetic words.  It is a powerfully uplifting glimpse of a personal struggle, witness for nature and ground -breaking crusade against the reckless pollution of our living world.  The audience will be able to question and dialog with this expert on the work of Rachel Carson and share their own experiences.

Caroline has performed as an historical interpreter since 2006. A former history teacher, theater manager and corporate presenter, she holds BA and MA degrees in American Studies. She recreates the roles of three of her personal heroes - Frances Perkins, first female presidential cabinet member, Rachel Carson and Mary Draper Ingles, SW Virginia frontierswoman captured by Shawnee Indians.  She likes to point out that one word describes all three - fearless!
