The talk starts at 7 p.m. at Town Hall and costs $5. Tickets are available at the door, online or by calling 888-377-4510.

Even better, a ticket gets you a double header, with the Science Now lecture beginning at 6. UW researchers will present on climate change and its effects on mussels and toxic algae blooms.
