TUESDAY, APRIL 21, 2009, 7:00 PM at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, WV. Free and open to the public. A SENSE OF WONDER
This film depicts scientist and author Rachel Carson in the last year of her life as she battles cancer and the chemical industry. The film is making a nationwide 100-city tour this month to celebrate National Women’s History Month. Carson’s bestseller Silent Spring, which she started writing in 1958 at the age of 50, was highly influential in the banning of the chemical DDT and the creation of EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the passage of the Clean Water Act.
Written by and starring film and television actress Kaiulani Lee, A Sense of Wonder offers a historically accurate and powerfully moving portrayal of this amazing woman. (http://www.ecosalon.com/)
