Book cover of Silent Spring

Silent Spring

By Rachel Carson

Why this book?

I read her book as a child, and it never left my memory. I was drawn to her “Fable of Tomorrow,” which she used to set the stage, and which became unforgettable in her readers’ minds. It launched the environmental movement. It is a literary device that inspired me in the writing of my essays, which at times take on the character of a fable.

Book cover of Pests in the City: Flies, Bedbugs, Cockroaches, and Rats

Pests in the City: Flies, Bedbugs, Cockroaches, and Rats

By Dawn Day Biehler

Why this book?

If you close your eyes and imagine nature in a city, most likely the first thing you imagine is a city park rather than the rats skittering between walls or the flies swarming the piles of garbage awaiting pick up. Dawn Biehler does a fantastic job of bringing the vermin in urban spaces to life, not only by looking at the ways these creatures are tied up in issues of environmental justice, but also by considering the perspectives and behaviors of the animals themselves.
