              RACHEL CARSON ONLINE BOOK CLUB BEGINS IN MARCH
                      http://rcbookclub.blogspot.com

Rachel Carson is considered by many to be the mother of modern-day ecology.
This year, to mark the 100th anniversary of Rachel Carson's birth, the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service, working with the Friends of the National
Conservation Training Center, will celebrate the achievements of its most
notable employee by launching the Rachel Carson Online Book Club.

Beginning in March and continuing through November 2007, the online book
club will focus on the life and work of Rachel Carson including her role as
a female leader in science and government.  Through the study of her
writing, the Book Club will provide an opportunity for dialogue and
discussion of current environmental issues in light of Carson’s legacy

Several distinguished moderators will participate in the online
discussions.   Author and Carson biographer, Linda Lear will launch the
first session on March 1.  Among other moderators in the line-up are:
marine biologist and Director of Duke Marine Laboratory, Cindy Van Dover;
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service historian Mark Madison; Houghton Mifflin
Executive Editor Deanne Urmy;  author and professor of Environmental
Studies at Middlebury College, John Elder.  (See complete list of
moderators below.)

“This online discussion (or blog) will be such a fabulous way to engage and
bring together people from many different communities to focus on the life
and legacy of Rachel Carson,” said Anne Post Roy, NCTC conservation
librarian. “The discussion should be incredibly interesting given the
stature of some of our moderators and the depth of knowledge that they will
bring to the online chat.”

Each month, a moderator will start the book discussion with an opening
statement.  Then, in dialogue with book club participants, the moderator
will provide weekly installments and add comments on the discussion
throughout the month.  Discussions will encompass current environmental
issues like global warming, and will extend to personal attitudes toward
the natural world.

Titles in the schedule range from Carson’s first book, Under the Sea-Wind,
in which she reveals her unique ability to present intricate scientific
material in clear poetic language that captivates readers; to Courage for
the Earth:  Writers, Scientists, and Activists Celebrate the Life and
Writing of Rachel Carson, an anthology edited by Peter Matthiessen that
will be released on April 22, 2007.

Silent Spring, Carson’s most well known book which alerted the public to
the dangers of pesticides and sparked a firestorm of controversy in its
wake, will be showcased as well as some of her lesser known texts on the
sea, and the truly inspirational The Sense of Wonder.

The Rachel Carson Online Book Club is sponsored by the Friends of the
National Conservation Training Center. Participation in the online book
club is open to everyone.  For more information, please contact Anne Roy,
