Avast ye, history lovers! Brookline Booksmith welcomes LAURA SOOK DUNCOMBE for a look at her new book. Pirate Women is the first-ever Seven Seas history of the world’s female buccaneers. It tells the story of women, both real and legendary, who through the ages sailed alongside—and sometimes in command of—their male counterparts.
This event is free and open to the public.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
