    Treat yourself to a good murder mystery on a cold winter day. In this chilling tale, we will focus on the crime’s co-conspirators—plants. Medical artist Jeffrey Day, MD, of the National Library of Medicine will give common biochemical mechanisms and fun backyard examples of herbs that harm humans. Prefer your plants a bit less pathological? We’ll also explore medicinal garden denizens and how they heal. We’ll draw examples from popular fiction so you can discover your favorite author’s science savvy—or get an idea for a new book to read. Fee: $10 ($8 FONA) Registration required.
