Mutiny at the Museum: An Epic Evening with Seafaring Outlaws
The Coos History Museum is gearing up for their upcoming annual fundraising dinner auction. “Mutiny at the Museum: An Epic Evening with Seafaring Outlaws”, is set for Saturday, September 8, 2018, beginning at 5:00 pm.
Best-selling author Eric Jay Dolin will be the featured guest speaker at the event to pre-release his new book titled Black Flags Blue Waters: The Epic History of America’s Most Notorious Pirates. Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, the book reveals the dramatic and surprising history of American piracy’s “Golden Age” – spanning the late 1600’s through the early 1700’s – when lawless pirates plied the coastal waters of North America and the Indian Ocean.
Dolin will be available for book signing at the fundraiser and copies of his new book will be available for purchase at the museum store before other bookstores or Amazon even have it on their shelves! Dolin’s presentation is accompanied by a slide show and will include an opportunity to answer questions from the audience. This September 8th event at the Coos History Museum is the only opportunity for Oregonians to meet and hear Eric Jay Dolin in person.
The evening includes dinner and dessert, catered by Black Market Gourmet and a variety of beverages from Stillwagon Distillery and 7 Devils Brewery. A photo booth and a motley band of pirates from the Shakespeare in the Park theater group will add to the evening festivities. A silent and live auction are also planned for the annual event. The Coos History Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and receives no direct government support. The museum is supported by donations, memberships, grants, museum store sales, special event rentals, legacy/bequest gifts, and money raised at the annual fundraiser.
