When the virus is under control, we hope to resume Moveable Feasts - literary luncheon on Fridays (and some Tuesdays!), featuring exciting authors at area restaurants. The event is dependent on several factors beyond our control: publishers' willingness to send out their authors on book tour; authors' willingness to travel (IF and WHEN the airline industry is functioning); reopening of the restaurant industry (being mindful of possible restrictions as to diner limitations, PPE requirements, etc.); and finally, YOU - your willingness to congregate. Our partner in the Moveable Feasts, Litchfield Books, has copies of the previously scheduled books and can fill e-mail orders ([email protected]).

To register or receive updates for Moveable Feasts, send us your e-dress by calling 843-235-9600, stop by our gallery in the Litchfield Exchange, or click 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 (currently suspended). Lee Brockington's Women's Retreat at the Sea View Inn (Nov. 8-10, 2020) will reward you in so many way.

Art Works, CLASS Productions and Publishing, and The Moveable Feast are owned and managed by Linda Ketron ([email protected]).

The Next Feast...

Susan Mallery - cancelled

author of "The Friendship List" at Kimbel's, Wachesaw.

"#1 New York Times bestselling author of 150 (not an error – typically three a year!) novels about the relationships that define women's lives — family, friendship, romance. Library Journal says, "Mallery is the master of blending emotionally believable characters in realistic situations," and readers seem to agree — 40 million copies of her books have sold worldwide. Her warm, humorous stories make the world a happier place to live. Single mom Ellen Fox couldn't be more content — until she overhears her son saying he can't go to his dream college because she needs him too much. If she wants him to live his best life, she has to convince him she's living hers. So Unity Leandre, her best friend since forever, creates a list of challenges to push Ellen out of her comfort zone. Unity will complete the list, too, but not because she needs to change. What's wrong with a thirty-something widow still sleeping in her late husband's childhood bed? "The Friendship List" begins as a way to make others believe they're just fine. But somewhere between "wear three inch heels" to "have sex with a gorgeous guy," Ellen and Unity discover that life is meant to be lived with joy and abandon, in a story filled with humor, heartache and regrettable tattoos."
