Sarah Albee - Poison: Deadly Deeds, Perilous Professions, and Murderous Medicines

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 10:30 am

Explore all things poisonous in spaces where science, history, and intrigue meet. What happened to the poor souls who accidentally took medicine that made them sicker? Or the suitors of a notable Florentine family who kept mysteriously (and conveniently) dying? What did Isaac Newton and Marie Curie have in common? At the heart of the matter, it’s poison. But what is poison, exactly? Readers find out, and pick up plenty of freaky facts and entertaining tales along the way. Budding scientists, historians, alchemists, and detectives will get the chance to try and stump the poison expert. Ages 8-12.
