Program Description

Event Details

Join us for a book talk and signing by author and historian Marty Podskoch. His new book, The Connecticut 169 Club: Your Passport and Guide to Exploring Connecticut, encourages travelers to visit all of the towns and villages of our beautiful and unique state.

About the book: Podskoch created this book to be a guide and a passport. He found someone from each town to write a short description highlighting their town’s location, history, and interesting places to visit. The book has a space for travelers to journal about their experiences and a place to get the book stamped or signed by a resident or business. Travelers will get to know the locals and perhaps learn about a good place to eat or an interesting local attraction and learn a lot about Connecticut and its residents in the process. People who visit all 169 towns will receive the “Leatherman Award” patch at a luncheon or dinner held at a different town each year. The award is named after the vagabond who lived in caves and traveled a route regularly (approx. 34 days) from the Connecticut River to the Hudson River during the late 1800s.
