*Wednesday, April 28, 2021 7:00pm Heritage Theatre Guild presents Famous American Women– Rachel Carson: Marine Biologist, Reformer, and Mother of Modern Environmentalism Portrayed by Pat Jordan
Co-sponsored by Radnor Historical Society and Radnor Conservancy – LIVE on Zoom with registration at Delco LibCal
Rachel Carson, born on a Springdale, Pennsylvania farm in 1907, is remembered today as the woman who challenged the notion that humans could obtain mastery over nature by chemicals, bombs and space travel than for her studies of ocean life. Her sensational book, Silent Spring (1962) warned of the dangers to all natural systems from the misuse of chemical pesticides such as DDT, and questioned the scope and direction of modern science, initiating the contemporary environmental movement. The author of many books, beginning with Under the Sea Wind (1941) and having worked in government during World War II, the scholar took advantage of the latest scientific material for her next book. By the 1950’s, Carson’s ecological vision of the oceans showed her embrace of a larger environmental ethic. Climate Change, rising sea-levels, melting Arctic glaciers, collapsing bird and animal populations, crumbling geological faults–all are part of Carson’s work. Join our audience as Pat Jordan, professional actor, playwright, and director, brings Rachel Carson to life in this virtual one-woman LIVE performance. Jordan’s passion for history has led her to portray many famous women in American history at venues such as the National Archives in Washington, DC, the Smithsonian Institution, as well as in historical films and of course, in schools and libraries.
