Time & Location
About the Event
Admission limited to 35. Tickets are $8/person.
Join us for a local author talk from mother-daughter team Beth Yarbrough and Ashley Oliphant and dive into their research on the Pirate Jean Laffite connection to Lorenzo Ferrer in Lincolnton, NC. Were they the same man?
Jean Laffite Revealed: Unraveling One of America's Longest-Running Mysteries takes a fresh look at the various myths and legends surrounding one of the last great pirates. Beginning in 1805, the book traces Laffite through his rise to power as a privateer and smuggler in the Gulf, his involvement in the Battle of New Orleans, his flight to Texas, and his eventual disappearance in the waters of the Caribbean. With stunning revelations, this book picks up the trail from there a trail that no one knew existed until now. This carefully researched work is a bona fide wild ride that will silence long-held speculation about Laffite's ultimate fate.
