Book Talk: Visionary Women – How Jane Jacobs and Rachel Carson Changed our World

Author Andrea Barnet brings to light her extensive research on the lives and work of Jane Jacobs and Rachel Carson, visionaries and activists with many similarities. Whether preserving Village architecture or our endangered planet, their ideas “not only turned out to be prescient but culture-changing—the catalyst to a radical shift in consciousness.” We will explore the details and the beauty of that shift.

Andrea Barnet is the author of Visionary Women: How Rachel Carson, Jane Jacobs, Jane Goodall, and Alice Waters Changed Our World, and All-Night Party: The Women of Bohemian Greenwich Village and Harlem, 1913-1930, and a nonfiction finalist for the 2004 Lambda Literary Awards. Her writing is in The New York Times Book Review, Smithsonian Magazine, the New York Times, and others.
