Rowley Library Born To Be Hanged

Wednesday October 12, 2022

ROWLEY — Join us at the library on Thursday, November 3 at 6:30pm to talk about Born to Be Hanged: The Epic Story of the Gentlemen Pirates Who Raided the South Seas, Rescued a Princess, and Stole a Fortune by Keith Thomson.

The year is 1680, the Golden Age of Piracy, and more than three hundred daring pirates banded together to slash their way through the jungles of Panama to the Pacific and began plundering the Spanish-controlled coast in a series of historic assaults, often prevailing against staggering odds. During their legendary two-year adventure, the buccaneers maraud up and down the coast, pursued by Indigenous tribes, Spanish conquistadors, and sometimes even their own English countrymen, in their quest for Spanish gold and glory, all ending in a sensational trial.

The library has copies of the book available, so call or stop by to pick one up today. For more information, call the library at 978-948-2850, or email – you don’t need to sign up to attend. The book club meets on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m., and future titles are listed on our web site at or Amy Roderick 978-948-2850
