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) inside Kimbel Lodge on the Hobcaw Barony property.

The Next Feast...

Elizabeth Letts

author of "Finding Dorothy" at Ocean One, Litchfield.

"This richly imagined novel tells the story behind "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz," the book that inspired the iconic film, through the eyes of author L. Frank Baum's intrepid wife, Maud. Hollywood, 1938: As soon as she learns that M-G-M is adapting her late husband's masterpiece for the screen, 77-year-old Maud Gage Baum sets about trying to finagle her way onto the set. Nineteen years after Frank's passing, Maud is the only person who can help the producers stay true to the spirit of the book — because she's the only one left who knows its secrets. But the moment she hears Judy Garland rehearsing the first notes of "Over the Rainbow," Maud recognizes the yearning that defined her own life story, from her youth as a suffragette's daughter to her coming of age as one of the first women in the Ivy League, from her blossoming romance with Frank to the hardscrabble prairie years that inspired "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." Judy reminds Maud of a young girl she cared for and tried to help in South Dakota, a dreamer who never got her happy ending. Now, with the young actress under pressure from the studio as well as her ambitious stage mother, Maud resolves to protect her — the way she tried so hard to protect the real Dorothy. The author of two New York Times bestselling nonfiction books, "The Eighty-Dollar Champion" and "The Perfect Horse," Elizabeth Letts is a master at discovering and researching a rich historical story and transforming it into a page-turner. Finding Dorothy is the result of Letts' journey into the amazing lives of Frank and Maud Baum. Written as fiction but based closely on the truth, the book tells a story of love, loss, inspiration, and perseverance, set in America's heartland."
