Lake Burton native and novelist Mike Maffett will tell you anything you’d ever hope to know about the history of Lake Burton, the upper Tallulah River, every hike within a 30 mile radius of Clayton, Georgia. If you haven't picked up a copy of his book, "Our Southern Eden" yet, here is your chance to meet its author. For those of you who have, you can hear from him directly.
There is probably no one more knowledgable about our lake and the surrounding area than Maffett, so don't miss your chance to spend this time with him and learn more about this beautiful lake. To read more, click here.

Why all the Fireworks?
Let’s Talk LIBERTY with Lake Burton’s own Jenny L. Cote
Saturday, June 26, 10 am
Every July 4th we love to join our family and friends out on the water for the best fireworks anywhere, but do we really understand what it took to gain our liberty?
Children’s historical fiction author Jenny L. Cote will give a fun, lively chat about how and why America declared her independence, sharing from her latest novel, "The Declaration, The Sword and The Spy".
Bring your family and join us dockside at the Pavilion to meet Jenny and get excited about this year’s Lake Burton fireworks like never before. Book signing to follow.
