A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the 21st Century
Presented by Peter Bales
On Thursday, April 10th, 2014, the Historical Society of Islip Hamlet and the Islip Public Library co-hosted stand up comic and history professor, Peter Bales.  

In the follow-up to his 1st book, Mr. Bales has continued to write a humorous, yet factual, account of American history from the Civil War through the 21st Century.  

The program was a blend of information and humor - proving that history can be both interesting and fun.
