CLASS Publishing Division is delighted to announce three amazing new coffee table books: "Sandy Island ... forever," edited by Linda Ketron with essays by Susan Hoffer McMillan, Robin Salmon, Vennie Deas Moore, Virginia and Dana Beach, paintings by Maura Kenny, and photographs by Anne Swift Malarich and other local photographers; "Our Vanishing Americana: A South Carolina Portrait" by Mike Lassiter; and Tanya Ackerman's long-awaited "Pawleys Island: Seasons of Light."

Two new CLASS books (for children and adults, too) are Johnny L. Ford's "McKenzie Beach Memories," as told to Ron Daise and illustrated by Natalie Daise, and Cindy Hedrick's heartwarming "Tails from SC CARES."

And terrific summer reads can be found in Dawn Dixon's debut cozy, "Faux Finished," and the re-release of William Woodson's "Waccamaw Gold." Both will be Moveable Feast presenters this summer.

A remarkable memoir, "Overcoming" by retired family court judge Robert N. Jenkins, Sr., has just been released. One of 13 children born to a rural McClellanville couple, Jenkins overcame poverty and prejudice to become a member of the Air Force rifle corps, the fourth African American graduate of The Citadel, a graduate of the University of South Carolina's law school, a distinguished attorney providing legal defense for those without means, and ultimately a family court judge meting out justice with fairness and compassion. Through the Jim Crow South of the 50s and 60s and an inequitable education system, despite The Great Society's efforts to balance the scales, Jenkins persevered through hard work, determination, a commitment to learning, and an abiding faith, all of which disallowed "excuses" – for himself, his children, his co-workers, and his clients. Filled with photos and personal remembrances, "Overcoming" is an inspirational reflection on a life well lived. The book is available at Art Works and by mail through CLASS and at The Village Museum in McClellanville.

The Next Feast...

Rita Shuler - FULL!

author of "The Lowcountry Murder of Gwendolyn Elaine Fogle: A Cold Case Solved" at Litchfield Country Club.

"For decades, evidence of the 1978 murder of Gwendolyn Elaine Fogle lay in the evidence room at the Walterboro Police Department. Investigators periodically revisited the case over the years, but it remained the department's top cold case for thirty-seven years. Special Agent Lieutenant Rita Shuler worked on the case shortly after she joined the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), and she couldn’t let it go, not even after her retirement in 2001. In May 2015, Lieutenant Shuler teamed up with new investigator Corporal Gean Johnson, and together they uncovered key evidence that had been overlooked. With new advancements in DNA and fingerprint technology, they brought the case to its end in just four months. Join Shuler as she details the gruesome history of this finally solved case."
