TREASURE ISLAND PODCAST

This winter, our senior Library Monitors, along with Mr. Morris, have been hard at work,  recording a five part audio podcast of a dramatic adaptation of Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island,” a tale of piracy and adventure on the high seas.

First published as a book in 1883, it is a coming of age story  and also a commentary on the ambiguity of morality as seen in the character of Long  John Silver.  The book itself has influenced popular perceptions of pirates including the notions of buried treasure,  images of one legged seamen,  tropical islands, schooners, cannons, planks, Caribbean rum, Davy Jones’ Locker, and the Jolly Roger flag with skull and crossbones.

Click on the link  to listen to Part 1 of 5 of Treasure Island in Sharepoint.    If you want to find out what happens next in this high sea adventure, stay tuned for Part 2.  Arr!
