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.

The Next Feast...

Thomas Mallon

author of "Landfall" at Caffe Piccolo (venue change!).

"Cited as "crisp and witty," "juicy," and "entertainingly bitchy," a new novel by Thomas Mallon is always a mouth-watering prospect for lovers of American politics. This one, set during the tumultuous middle of the George W. Bush years—amid the twin catastrophes of the Iraq insurgency and Hurricane Katrina—brings Thomas Mallon's cavalcade of contemporary American politics, which began with Watergate and continued with Finale, to a vivid and emotional climax. The president at the novel’s center possesses a personality whose high-speed alternations between charm and petulance, resoluteness and self-pity, continually energize and mystify the panoply of characters around him. They include his acerbic, crafty mother, former First Lady Barbara Bush; his desperately correct and eager-to-please secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice; the gnomic and manipulative Donald Rumsfeld; foreign leaders from Tony Blair to Vladimir Putin; and the caustic one-woman chorus of Ann Richards, Bush’s predecessor as governor of Texas. A gallery of political and media figures, from the widowed Nancy Reagan to the philandering John Edwards to the brilliantly contrarian Christopher Hitchens, bring the novel and the era to life. The story is deepened and driven by a love affair between two West Texans, Ross Weatherall and Allison O'Connor, whose destinies have been affixed to Bush's since they were teenagers in the 1970s. The true believer and the skeptic who end up exchanging ideological places in a romantic and political drama that unfolds in locations from New Orleans to Baghdad and during the parties, press conferences, and state funerals of Washington, D.C."
