October 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Does your evening cocktail taste a little different? Has a spouse recently increased your life insurance policy? Has a neighbor started growing some unusual plants?
This presentation from scientist, teacher, and nationally published author Dr. Neil Bradbury explores the effects of poisons on the human body, and examines the motives of killers in plotting murder. Expect lethal umbrellas, deadly cocktails, and killer curries.
A Taste for Poison is a unique combination of science, true crime, and murder mystery. You will learn the symptoms to expect if you are poisoned, and if you have time, what to tell the paramedics you have been given.
This one-time event will appeal to any true-crime fans, sciencey types, and history buffs.
