Book of the Month

"Oh, what did you see, my blue eyed son?"
On this blog we will frequently be drawing attention to interesting new titles to be found on the library shelves.

First time out, we're throwing the spotlight on
Hard Rain
: Our Headlong Collision with Nature, by Mark Edwards.
This book contains a collection of stunning photographs taken by Edwards over 40 years, detailing environmental and humanitarian concerns, and marries them with the lyrics of Hard Rain, written by Bob Dylan during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962.
The collection was exhibited in the Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin during the summer. The book also contains essays by Robert May, John Elkington, Geoff Lye, Jonathon Porrit and David Bohm.
