Author Mark Albertson will sign copies of his book “On History” Nov. 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the Milford Public Library.

Albertson writes: “The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki occurred before the attack on Pearl Harbor, right?

“Well believe it or not there were two Americans walking around who actually believed just that.”

The author refers to events in history that have a distinct and sometimes controversial contemporary impact.

“On History: A Treatise” is meant to be a lightning rod to challenge the status quo.
