Pirate Week - Blackbeard

This Wednesday as part of Kimbel Library Pirate Week, Kevin Duffus, author of The Last Days of Black Beard the Pirate, and 2014-2015 North Carolina Historian of the Year (N.C. Society of Historians), will speak about his book and the historical research that went into writing it. His research challenges the traditional image of the notorious Blackbeard. Come hear why the truth is more interesting than the tale.

The Last Days of Blackbeard the Pirate is brought to you as part of Pirate Week at Kimbel Library. This talk is part of the History Talk series, which is sponsored by the Horry County Archives Center, and takes place at the Lib Jackson Student Union Theatre on Wednesday, Sep. 16 at 7:00 PM. Admission is free and open to the public.
