Connecticut 169 Club

Saturday, November 16, 1:00 pm.

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.

Books will be available for purchase at the event.

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.
