Connecticut author Martin Podskoch visits to talk about his latest book, The Connecticut 169 Club: Your Passport and Guide to Exploring Connecticut, on Monday, May 13 at 7:00 pm at the Fairfield Public Library. Podskoch navigates readers off the interstate and onto the backroads to meet with fascinating neighbors and uncover the cool curiosities tucked into the 169 towns and cities that make up the Nutmeg State. Podskoch recruited writers, historians, and officials from each town and asked them to write a short description about their town’s history, interesting places to visit, and good places to eat. Jennifer Carpenter, Deputy Chief of Staff for the Town of Fairfield, contributed to the Fairfield piece.

The book has a space for journaling and a place to gather a stamp, sticker or signature from every municipality visited. If you make it to all of the towns, you become a member of “The 169 Club”, receive a “Leatherman” patch (named after a famed leather-clad traveler who toured the state in the late 1800’s) and get invited to attend an annual yearly luncheon or dinner to be held in a different town each year. The whole family can enjoy the adventure of exploring all 169 Connecticut towns. “Let’s all take the road less traveled,” Podskoch says. Registration is requested (click for details

This is the ninth book for travel and history author Podskoch, a retired reading teacher who lives in East Hampton, CT. He has been recognized for his extensive work documenting the history of the Catskills, Adirondack Fire Towers and the Civilian Conservation Corps.
