Shiver me timbers! It’s a freebie
Posted by: Mary Burkey

Arrr Matey! Download a FREE eBook to celebrate Sept. 19th, Talk Like a Pirate Day. Grab L. Ron Hubbard’s The Devil’s Rescue from Galaxy Press, and practice your Pirate accent while you read aloud the pulp fiction piratical adventure. Here’s the link: http://www.galaxypress.com/free-devils-rescue-book/ Post on your library web site along with a link to Mango Language’s “Talk Pirate” page here http://www.mangolanguages.com/learn-pirate/.

And here’s a full-length video of The Devil’s Rescue, performed as a live-action audiobook by the Golden Age Theater troupe. Plus these fun facts from Galaxy Press about L. Ron Hubbard (yes, that Hubbard): “In his early twenties, L. Ron Hubbard led the two-and-a-half-month, five-thousand-mile Caribbean Motion Picture Expedition. He followed that with the West Indies Mineralogical Expedition near San Juan, Puerto Rico, in which he completed the island’s first mineralogical survey as an American territory. It was during these two journeys that Hubbard became an expert on the Caribbean’s colorful history—an expertise he drew on to write stories.”
