September Issue Highlights
Welcome to the September issue of Science Books & Films. Through the first week of this month, we had been accepting nominations for the 2016 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prizes. Our editorial offices are overflowing with books and we look forward to sharing the finalists and winners with you later this year. We will also publish a commended books list in our November issue. We’ve got some great entries this year and we can’t wait to share them with you.
Also this month our featured bibliography is a list of ten outstanding books that represent some of the greatest nature photographers of the last 150 years who combined artistry and technical mastery to create enduring images that literally put the diversity and beauty of the natural world into the palms of our hands. (p. 300)
Our second feature provides a preview of the six episodes that comprise the new second season of the Smithsonian Channel’s Wild Inside the National Zoo. The episodes profile some of the Zoo’s most popular and well-known animals, as well as ones you may not know about but should. (p. 301)
Our Read-Around-A-Theme this month is one of our most eclectic and far reaching. It centers on the earth science with a special focus on the science behind our planet during the fall season. (p. 304) It includes web resources and discussion questions that can be used to spark intergenerational discussion.
And finally as part of our series that highlights AAAS education programs, this month we showcase our STEM Volunteer Program that helps scientists, engineers, and mathematicians connect with their local schools. (p. 311)
As in every issue, you’ll find our monthly selection of books, media, and website reviews and our listings of upcoming science television programming.
