The Irish Film Board has confirmed that The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi will be filmed in Ireland next year.  It will star Pierce Brosnan and Morgan Freeman but the role of Charlotte has yet to be cast.   The story is set in the 1830s and tells of Charlotte’s adventures aboard the Seahawk as she is caught between a vicious captain and a mutinous crew.  The book is available for loan from the SAC Library.
