Author to speak on legacy of Rachel Carson

September 27, 2012

On Wednesday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m., author William Souder will present “On a Farther Shore: The Life and Legacy of Rachel Carson.” 

The talk will be held in the Byrd Auditorium at the National Conservation Training Center, Shepherd Grade Road in Shepherdstown, W.Va.

Published on the 50th anniversary of Carson’s book, “Silent Spring,” Souder’s just-published book is a portrait of Carson, one of the founders of the environmental movement.

She loved the ocean and wrote three books about its mysteries, including the international bestseller “The Sea Around Us.”

The presentation is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required. It is part of a monthly Conservation Lecture Series at the center.
