A Georgia Day Celebration

On this day, we hope you will plan to come to the Athens-Clarke Library Auditorium this Saturday at 2pm to learn about the events and personalities that helped shape Georgia's present-day boundaries, from the Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 to the border dispute over water rights with Tennessee in 2008.

Author William J. Morton, M.D., J.D., will give the presentation, based on his book The Story of Georgia's Boundaries: A Meeting of History and Geography. The book will be available in the Library Store for purchase, and light refreshments will be served.

We look forward to seeing you there!
