Romero’s talk, “Arsenic and Old Waste: The Economic Poisoning of United States Agriculture,” will tell how arsenic, a waste product of copper smelting, was used historically as a common pesticide in agriculture, spreading poison across the United States.

The events are free and open to the public. All ages are welcome and seating is first come, first served. The talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
