"A Sense of Wonder", a one-woman play based on the life and works of Rachel
Carson, will be performed on Tuesday March 5, 1996 at 7:30 in the Kellogg
Center Auditorium at MSU.
The performance, featuring award-winning actress Kaiulani Lee, is part of
Agriculture and Natural Resources Week at Michigan State University.
Carson is best remembered for her 1968 book Silent Spring, which alerted
the world to the dangers of synthetic chemical pesticides.
A Sense of Wonder is the story of a woman's love for the natural world and
her fight to defend it. It is a story of the extremely private Rachel
Carson thrust into the role of controversial public figure. Because of the
sensitive and intense nature of the play, it is probably not suitable for
children younger than 13.
The performance is partially underwritten by a number of groups including
Michigan Integrated Food & Farming Systems, the Michigan Agricultural
Stewardship Association, Organic Growers of Michigan, North Central Region
Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Chapter 3 program, MSU's
College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Michigan Organic Food &
Order tickets by calling (517) 355-7490.
