Free and open to the public.
Join us for a PowerPoint presentation and book signing with author and historian Marty Podskoch and his new book, The Connecticut 169 Club: Your Passport and Guide to Exploring Connecticut.
This travel book encourages travelers to visit all of the towns and villages of our beautiful and unique state. Podskoch went right to the source and got local residents of each town to write short descriptions highlighting their town’s location, history, and interesting places to visit. People who visit all 169 towns will receive the “Leatherman Award” patch at a luncheon or dinner held in a different town each year. The award is named after a late 1800s vagabond who lived in caves and regularly traveled a 34-day-long route from the Connecticut River to the Hudson River.
