SOLD OUT – Marjory Stoneman Douglas & Rachel Carson: Their Books Changed the World”

Dec 6, 20236:00 pm


Heritage Lecture Series Presented by The Colony Hotel & Cabana Club

We are thrilled to welcome literary historian, Betty Jean Steinshouer for a wonderful evening, celebrating two influential women.

This engaging program begins in 1941, when Marjory Stoneman Douglas was a journalist, writing her River of Grass book for money, not to save the Everglades. When Rachel Carson published Silent Spring in 1962, some of the United States’ most beloved birds were well on their way to extinction due to pesticides. You’ll learn how Douglas restored the Everglades and Carson saved wildlife through their writings.
