Pirates are the topic this month on The Point books show. Our guests Jill Erickson, reference librarian at the Falmouth Public Library, and Peter Abrahams, author,  join host Amy Vince in the WCAI studio to discuss the great variety of books about pirates. From Captain Kidd's lost treasure, to the modern day piracy of huge container ships, we dip into the dangerous and fascinating world of pirate stories.
