A Morning with Rachel Carson

Saturday, April 13, 2019

Leslie Goddard, Actress and Scholar

Providing a portrayal of an influential and important woman from the past, this presentation is significant to environmental issues today. Imagine having a conversation with Rachel Carson, scientist and author of Silent Spring, about what led her to write this seminal wake-up call about the dangers of the pesticide DDT and the process to get Congress to ban it. This program is entertaining as well as informative.

Leslie is an award-winning actress and scholar who has been performing historical characters for over 10 years. She holds a PhD from Northwestern University in American Studies and US History as well as a Masters degree in theater.
