Martin Podskoch Book Talk & Signing
March 11, 2017
Mr. Podskoch will discuss and sign copies of his new book "Connecticut Civilian Conservation Corps Camps: History, Memories & Legacy of the CCC." (The book will be available for purchase at the talk.) The CCC was a public works program that operated from 1933 to 1942, as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. It targeted young men and veterans in relief families who had difficulty finding jobs during the Great Depression, providing unskilled manual labor related to environmental conservation and development of natural resources. One of the camps was in Kent. Jointly presented by Kent Historical Society and the Kent Memorial Library. The program is free & open to the public. Donations are welcome. To register please call the library at 860.927.3761 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
