Join us Thursday, May 13 at 7 p.m. for a conversation with author and Press Herald national reporter Colin Woodard on the Golden Age of Piracy and the legendary buccaneers who not only sailed the oceans, wreaking havoc and disrupting trade in the Caribbean, but established their own republic in the West Indies.

Woodard’s book, ‘The Republic of Pirates,’ is now one of the sources of the international hit Netflix docudrama series ‘The Lost Pirate Kingdom,’ which includes on-camera interviews with Woodard on Blackbeard’s pirate gang and their reign of lawlessness on the high seas.

Woodard will sit down with Press Herald web editor Katherine Lee.
