Author and historian Marty Podskoch is set to give a talk on his book The Adirondack 102 Club on April 28th in Hadley. The book encourages people to visit all 102 towns and villages in the Adirondacks.
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.”
Podskoch 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. For The Adirondack 102 Club, Podskoch asked local writers to describe their town & village’s location, history, and important points of interests.
The program is part of the two-day Maple in April Festival, along Rockwell Street in Hadley. Podskoch will be at the Performing Arts Tent #2 at noon.
After the presentation Saturday, April 28 Podskoch will sign copies of the travel book. Also on hand, Hadley Town Supervisor, Arthur “Mo” Wright will stamp the Hadley Page declaring your visit to the Town of Hadley and to the 2018 Maple in April Festival.
