Adam Romero will be the next speaker in the University of Washington Bothell Pub Night Talk at McMenamins.

Romero, an assistant professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences at UW Bothell, will be at Hayne’s Hall in McMenamins Anderson School, 18607 Bothell Way NE in Bothell, from 7-8:30 p.m. on Feb. 26. Doors open at 6 p.m.

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.

Pub Night Talks is a free monthly lecture series featuring the work of experts from the University of Washington and the local community, cosponsored by UW Bothell and McMenamins. Topics have ranged from black holes and butterflies to ecological resilience and storytelling through engineering.

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.
