Upcoming Events

Cumberland Island Lecture & Literary Luncheon

Saturday, August 29 • Zoom at 11:30 • Lunch To Go

We're fascinated by the history and beauty of Cumberland Island. Join us in person or via Zoom to listen to author Stephen Doster and photographer Ben Galland take us on a virtual trip. Then, take home lunch inspired by Greyfield Inn's Chef Whitney Otawka's beautiful cookbook, The Saltwater Table. 

Cumberland Island: Footsteps in Time is the first book about the island that offers readers a complete history of the island combined with stunning photography and historical images. Richly illustrated with more than 250 color and black-and-white photographs, it is a comprehensive history, from native occupation to the present. Author Stephen Doster takes the reader on a chronological journey, outlining the key events and influential inhabitants that have left their mark on this stretch of Georgia's coast.


The presentation is free and open to all. A limited number of The HAPPY PLACE Club members will have the option of enjoying lunch in Story & Song's art gallery with photographer Ben Galland.

Reserve now for:

  1. Cumberland Island: Footsteps in Time - with signed bookplate by Doster and Galland, $34.95

  2. The Saltwater Table: Recipes from the Coastal South - autographed by Chef Whitney Otawka (Cumberland Island's Greyfield Inn), $40
