Author Logan Beirne will sign books downtown Thursday

Milford author Logan Beirne will be discussing his book “Blood of Tyrants” at Collected Stories Bookstore, on Thursday, June 13, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

In the book, Beirne reveals through painstaking research, new and surprising details of George Washington’s military leadership and how the experience of the American Revolution formed the basis of the constitution and defined presidential powers.

From the introduction, the author writes: “A bloodthirsty Congress demands revenge. The commander in chief weighs torture. Politicians clash with generals over war policy. Americans’ liberties come under attack. No, this is not the post-9/11 United States. This is the side of the American Revolution you never knew.”

Everyone is invited to the event and the author, an Olin Scholar at Yale Law School, will be available to answer questions. For more information, go to Collected Stories Bookstore is located at 12 Daniel Street.
