Talk: The Golden Age of Piracy

Local historian and author Eric Jay Dolin will discuss his latest book on piracy on the Atlantic Coast in the late 17th and early 18th centuries.  His talk will include such well-known pirates as Blackbeard and Captain Kidd and will discuss the American colonists’ attitudes toward them.

The talk, co-hosted by the Wellesley Historical Society and Wellesley Free Library, will take place at the main library branch on Thursday, May 16 at 7pm.
