March 9: Dr. Neil Bradbury
7 PM (Zoom)

In March, Dr. Neil Bradbury will join us for A Consumer’s Guide to Poisons: A Brief History of Poison in Literature and Crime.

Throughout history poisons have both intrigued and appalled. From real life murders to the use of poisons in murder mysteries and political thrillers, we will see how poisons are administered, how they kill, and what symptoms each poison would cause. So sit back, relax, and make sure you know exactly what’s in the coffee you are drinking!

Dr. Neil Bradbury is the author of A Taste For Poison, which Kathy Reichs described as “A fascinating tale of poisons and poisonous deeds which both educates and entertains.” With degrees in Biochemistry and Medical Biochemistry, Dr. Bradbury is a scientist, researcher, writer and teacher. Like all of us at Sisters in Crime, he’s mad about mysteries and poisons.
