CT 169 Club Talk & Booksigning
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Join us at the Killingworth Firehouse as Marty Podskoch introduces his new, interactive title: Connecticut 169 Club. This new travel book encourages travelers to visit all of the towns and villages of our beautiful and unique state. Marty created Connecticut 169 to be a guide and a passport. Historians 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. In this way they get to know a lot about Connecticut and its residents. There is no membership fee, just a desire to experience all of Connecticut. Adults and children of all ages can be members. 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.

Podskoch will be signing and selling books after the talk. The hard cover 8.5 X 11 book has 376 pages with hundreds of photos & maps and sells for $24.95. The event is free but advance sign up is required. Please register by clicking the box below.

Mystery Book Club
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us as we discuss Call For the Dead by John LeCarre. Although John LeCarre writes mostly spy novels this selection is written a mystery at the beginning of his writing career. "Intelligent, thrilling, surprising ... makes most cloak-and-dagger stuff taste of cardboard."-- Sunday Telegraph (London) With the incomparable opening chapter of Call for the Dead, titled "A Brief History of George Smiley," John Le Carré introduces his legendary spy and immediately ensnares you in the shadowy world Smiley inhabits. Pulled back from overseas duty during World War II, Smiley was redirected to face the threats of the Cold War. He had been asked to interview Samuel Fennan of the Foreign Office after an anonymous letter accused Fennan of Communist Party membership. Smiley's report cleared him of the allegations, so he was stunned to learn that Fennan had died the day after the interview, leaving a suicide note that claimed his career had been ruined. Investigating circumstances that make no sense to him, Smiley gradually uncovers a spy ring and in so doing is led into a lethal duel of wits with the best of his war-time pupils.

Extra copies will be available at the circulation desk. Newcomers always welcome!
