"St. James Santee: Plantation Parish" Reprint Launch:
At the behest and backing of The Friends of Hampton Plantation, a long out-of-print but absolutely invaluable history of the “French Santee” has been reprinted by CLASS Publishing. This meticulously researched and highly readable work by Anne Baker Leland Bridges and Roy Williams III, both now deceased, records the history of the territory between Georgetown and Charleston from 1685-1925, the challenges of the French Huguenots and English Protestants to settle and thrive as refugees from religious persecution, and their struggles with climate, terrain, wars, and disease. Several “friendraising” events are planned to increase awareness of this history and of the Friends group which preserves and promotes one of the historic treasures of that era – Hampton Plantation.

Selected titles are available on the Waccamaw Neck at Brookgreen Gardens Keepsakes, Driftwood Mercantile, My Sister's Books, The Original Hammock Shop, and in Georgetown, at the Georgetown County Museum, The Rice Museum, and Waterfront Books, The Village Museum in McClellanville and the Preservation Society of Charleston Shop.

The Moveable Feast has transitioned from its 25-year run of Friday literary luncheons to smaller, more intimate luncheons on (mostly) TUESDAYS, featuring presenters on a broad range of cultural topics (music, art, drama, history, and some literature). Each Feast is $35 per person (or 3 for $100).

The Next Feast...

Annual Holiday Moveable Feast - FULL!

author of "Annual Holiday Moveable Feast" at The Village House, Litchfield.

"Continuing the "giving" tradition, CLASS and My Sister's Books will host a lovely luncheon around The Village House's holiday tree, loaded with literary giveaways. We have three new and uplifting books authored by local talents who will share their inspiration. Children's author Christine Doran and artist Janice Coward team up for a heartwarming tale about self-esteem, featuring the animated parlor furniture of the Kaminski House Museum and a busy little mouse who scampers among them sharing the miracle and magic of Christmas. Then award-winning author Stephanie Alexander brings us her fourth and final installment of the Tipsy Collins' series, in which she beautifully wraps up the characters' journeys with a blend of paranormal intrigue and life lessons. We'll conclude with the true love story of Pris Keefer and Paul Mikos, now in their 80s, whose charming "her view/his view" chronicle will give hope and a little nudge to folks out there who are just "not done" with exploring, learning, sharing and loving the great gift that is this life. Treat yourself to a fine time with fine friends to celebrate the season and the conclusion of another fine year."
