    This appearance will actually be by Ann Beyke, who will take on Carson’s persona in a performance known as a Chautauqua.
    Imagine spring without singing birds. Carson’s cautionary tale, “Silent Spring,” warned of the effects of unchecked and unchallenged use of pesticides. Published in 1962, her book was applauded by some and considered pseudoscience by others.  But regardless of what anyone thinks about the merits of her book, it awakened the American public to problems of the overuse of pesticides and other pollutants.
