Rachel Carson is one of the most famous figures in the history of environmentalism in the United States.  In 1962, she published her most famous book, "Silent Spring," about the dangers of pesticides in the environment.  This Thursday, The Evergreen State College is presenting a play about the life of Rachel Carson, called "A Sense of Wonder."  It starts at 7 pm and will be staged in the Longhouse.  This will be an excellent opportunity to learn about an important and interesting woman.  More details can be found here.
