It’s National Talk Like a Pirate Day! Pirates get a bad rap - and rightfully so! They plunder. They pillage. They, well, pirate. But don’t let the peg-legged limps fool you: these guys know how to insert themselves in quality yarns. Meet the most memorable swashbucklers on the high seas of literature, and get ready to find a treasure trove of adventures.
