The CLASS Publishing Division is delighted to announce its newest publications: "Carolina Rambling" by Selden Hill and William Baldwin; "Lost and Found" by Ernest Merchant; "A Very Special Family: The House of Joseph Thomas Raad, Georgetown, SC" by John Kenny; "I CAN! Adventures with Birdie," the fourth in a series of children's books initiated by Ron Daise; and "Holidogs," a happy read for all ages by Gayle Agee and Millie Doud (now in hardcover). Click on CLASS Publishing above for details of these and other publications by this small press. To purchase, click on CLASS List and select the book(s) of your choice. We will call or email for your payment preference.

Fridays (and some weekdays!) CLASS presents Moveable Feasts, literary luncheons featuring exciting authors at area restaurants. Each Moveable Feast is $30 (however, if you purchase the featured book at the Feast, CLASS will give you a $5 cash rebate!). Occasionally, the Feast includes the book as a requirement of the publisher (these are typically "heavy-hitters" that we wouldn't get otherwise). To register or receive the schedule for the Moveable Feasts, send us your e-dress by calling 843-235-9600, stopping by our gallery in the Litchfield Exchange, or clicking on the topic of your choice at the top of this page.

CLASS (Community Learning About Special Subjects) offers special excursions and retreats. Click on CLASS List for details about twice monthly Paint-Ins at the Litchfield Exchange with Danny McLaughlin. Lee Brockington's Women's Retreat at the Sea View Inn will reward you in so many ways.

CLASS Productions offers intimate Saturday afternoon concerts with remarkable performers (e.g., Clay Brown, Donald Ceasar, Donna & Mark Groom, Drink Small, Dixieland Swampers, Unisoghn, Gracie Holliday, Mac Arnold, Lime and the Coconuts) inside Kimbel Lodge on the Hobcaw Barony property. Concerts will resume in the fall.

Art Works, CLASS, CLASS Publishing and The Moveable Feast are owned and managed by Linda Ketron (linda@classatpawleys.com).

The Next Feast...

Mary Edna Fraser & Cecelia Dailey

author of "The Batik Art of Mary Edna Fraser" at Caffe Piccolo (venue change).

"Mary Edna Fraser has taken the art of batik to otherworldly heights. An internationally renowned artist, Fraser has had works grace galleries, museums, and public buildings throughout the United States - creating wonder, awe, and an awareness of the environment around us as few artists have had the talent and vision to manage. Using fabric, wax, and dye, Fraser has transformed the techniques of batik from its ancient origins and forged new panoramas and vistas of our unique planet from the sky above us to the ground beneath our feet, and even down to the evocative landscapes that sprawl across the ocean floor. These images not only astonish us with their allure; they also remind of us of our place in the world and our responsibility to respect and care for it. Part history and guide to the challenging techniques of this form, "The Batik Art of Edna Fraser" affords not only a full-color introduction to Fraser's stunning perceptions of the glaciers, icebergs, coastlines, atmospheres, mountains, and rivers that grace our globe, but gives us an intimate look at the artist at work and the philosophies that guide her singular imagination as well. Bold, beautiful, thoughtful, and always visceral, Fraser's art invites us outside to see with new eyes the horizons that surround us - and inside to see ourselves in our inextricable connection with the land, the seas, the skies, the earth, as we are woven together as one in the fabric of our existence on this, our home, the vibrant blue planet hurtling through space and time."
