Journalist and historian Daphne Palmer Geanacopoulos is also the author of two books about the world of pirates. The first, The Pirate Next Door: The Untold Story of Eighteenth-Century Pirates’ Wives, Families and Communities, came out in 2017. Her new volume is The Pirate’s Wife: The Remarkable True Story of Sarah Kidd, which the Christian Science Monitor calls “a striking, thoroughly researched depiction of just how much persistence and inventiveness it took for a woman in Colonial America to retain security and dignity over the course of her life.” Geanacopoulos discussed The Pirate’s Wife with fellow BIO member Lisa Napoli in March.
