2PM SATURDAY, JANUARY 5 Club Read: Privateer's Apprentice
Club Read members discuss Privateer's Apprentice by Susan Verrico (who attends via Skype) and eat free pizza from Clockwork Pizza.
It's 1712 in Charles Towne, Carolina Territory. Thirteen-year-old Jameson Cooper, son of
a printer, has been thrown in jail after the death of both of his parents. Sold to the town baker, Jameson is kidnapped by privateers working for Queen Anne before he can even begin his indentured servitude. Adventures on the high seas follow, and Jameson must prove his worth to the men who eventually become his "family." In the end, it is up to Jameson to use his wits and education to save his captain from death.
