A Bevy of Books for Earth Day #EarthDay #Books

I first met Carl Safina when I interviewed him about his powerful and moving book, THE VIEW FROM LAZY POINT: A Natural Year in an Unnatural World (2010). In this book, Safina alternates between lyrical descriptions of the beauty of place -- bringing the mind’s eye into a tender observation of terns, sea ducks and other shorebirds, as well as bluefish and horseshoe crabs from his vantage point on Long Island's East End -- and strong warnings about the impact of climate change and environmental abuse. He also travels to other places on our watery planet to share some inspiring stories of safeguarding coral reefs and fisheries. He counsels "enlarging the circle of compassion" to encompass all living beings as the prescription for saving our world for ourselves and our children. (Writer's Voice will be airing the interview later this spring.)
