Members of the 55+Club, and anyone of this age, are invited to attend the Nov. 11 meeting which will feature Professor Lisa Clark Diller, chairperson of the History Department of Southern Adventist University.
Her topic will be "Pirates, Democracy and Property Rights." She will talk about the Golden Age of Piracy and how it shaped the world today. How did pirates help create modern nation states? How did piracy contribute to ideas of intellectual property rights? What role did pirates play in the formation of capitalism? A question and answer period will follow.
