Biologist and author Rachel Carson warned the world of the potentially dire environmental impact of chemical pesticides in her best-selling 1962 book, “Silent Spring.” In this new living-history program, set in 1963, actress and historian Leslie Goddard portrays Carson as she discusses her life. A collaboration with the League of Women Voters of Oak Park and River Forest.
