While former secretary of state Hillary Clinton signed copies of her new book, “Hard Choices,” at the Harvard Book Store on Monday, one of her predecessors (and the first woman to hold that office), Madeleine Albright (above) was at Wellesley College, the alma mater of both women, and scheduled to sign copies of her own book, “Read My Pins.” Wellesley is showing Albright’s collection of pins in its Davis Museum through July 20. Monday night’s event included a public discussion with Albright and Wellesley’s president, H. Kim Bottomly, in the school’s Alumnae Hall.
