Martin Podskoch, author of The 169 Club

Martin Podskoch’s new book, The 169 Club, encourages travelers to visit all of the towns and villages of our beautiful and unique state. The book is designed to be a travel guide and a passport. Believing that residents are the experts on their own town, Podskoch enlisted a native from each town to write a short description highlighting their town’s location, history, and interesting places to visit. The book includes space for travelers to journal about their experiences and a place to include a stamp or the signature of a resident or business. Travelers learn about Connecticut and its residents by meeting the local townspeople, finding a good place to eat or an interesting local attraction. There is no membership fee, just a desire to experience all of Connecticut. The book will be available for sale and signing following the program. Sponsored by the Friends of the Ledyard Library, this program is free and open to the public.
