The Adirondack 102 Club -Your Passport & Guide to all the North Country Towns & Villages

Posted by admin on September 5th, 2014

 

On Thursday, September 18, from 6:30-7:00 p.m., the public is invited to join author and historian, Marty Podskoch, for a book signing, lecture, and slide presentation of his latest book, the Adirondack 102 Club, that encourages people to visit all 102 towns and villages in the Adirondacks. The program will be held at the Stony Creek Free Library in Stony Creek.

The idea for the 102 Club began after Podskoch read about Dr. Arthur Peach of Vermont who in 1954 suggested the idea of an informal group, the Vermont 251 Club, to veer off the beaten path “to discover the secret and lovely places that main roads do not reveal.” Marty had local writers describe their town & village’s location, history, and important points of interests. Podskoch felt the local residents knew their town a lot better than he. Podskoch believed the Adirondacks would benefit from a similar club who has traveled extensively in the Adirondacks gathering material for his five books on the Adirondack fire towers, the Civilian Conservation Corps camps, and Adirondack lore, and will share the joys of fully experiencing the Adirondacks and getting to know its local people and places.

Podskotch has authored six other books and was awarded the Arthur E. Newkirk ADK Mountain Club Education award in 2013. His book is available now in local stores.
