The University of Washington Bothell is partnering with McMenamins Anderson School to present Pub Night Talks— a monthly series of talks by experts from UW Bothell and the local community.

These talks are held in Haynes’ Hall the last Tuesday evening of each month at McMenamins Anderson School in downtown Bothell. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the talks begin at 7 p.m. and are followed by a questions and answers period.

All talks are free and open to the public. All ages are welcome.

This month’s event will host astrophysicist Joey Shapiro Key, assistant professor of the School of STEM at the University of Washington Bothell.

During her presentation, entitled “LIGO, Black Holes and Our New View of the Universe,” Key will explain gravitational wave detectors that allow scientists to study the cosmic collisions of black holes and neutron stars and to peer deeper into the history of the universe.

Advanced registration is optional and does not include reserved seating. All seating is first come, first served.
