Author Talk: Kathleen Housley:“Stone Breaker: The Poet James Gates Percival and the Beginning of Geology in New England,”at Pardee-Morris House

June 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In the early 1800s, when the prevailing belief was that the earth was 6,000 years old and had been shaped by Noah’s flood, James Gates Percival showed that the traprock in the Connecticut valley was volcanic and far older.

Housley is the author of eleven books. Her poems and essays on the interconnection between science and the humanities have appeared in many national publications.  She has served as a scientific editor in the field of materials science and has led adult education seminars at Trinity College and Wesleyan University.
