Join the National Park Service, Boston Harbor Now and Save the Harbor/Save the Bay for a lecture exploring our Revolutionary Harbor. Best-selling author Eric Jay Dolin will speak about his new book, "Black Flags, Blue Waters: The Epic History of America's Most Notorious Pirates." Through engrossing episodes of roguish glamour and extreme brutality, Dolin depicts the dramatic and surprising history of American piracy's Golden Age. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Dolin provides this wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life. Following the lecture, Eric Jay Dolin will be available for book signing.
