The CLASS Publishing Division is delighted to announce its newest publications: "Riverside Blues, A Gullah Tale" by Tracy S. Bailey, "A Country Girl from Colleton County" by Bryan B. England, and "Getting Out - A Plan for a Successful Life after Prison" by Jesse James Marshall, as well as "Planting with Nana" (fifth in a series of children's books for Brookgreen Gardens initiated by Ron Daise) and "Fred & Ted: A Day at the Circsus," the first in a series by Lizzie Gallo recounting the antics and adventures of two mischievous teddy bears. Click on CLASS Publishing above for details of these and other publications by this small press. To purchase, click on CLASS List and select the book(s) of your choice. We will call or email for your payment preference.

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; rooms are filling quickly for the upcoming Nov. 3-5 retreat.

CLASS Productions presents intimate Saturday afternoon concerts with remarkable performers during the fall and winter inside Kimbel Lodge on the Hobcaw Barony property. Check back for the 2019-2020 season.

Art Works, CLASS Productions and Publishing, and The Moveable Feast are owned and managed by Linda Ketron (linda@classatpawleys.com).

The Moveable Feast Literary Luncheons

The Next Feast...

Kathryn Smith - FULL!

author of "Gertie: Heiress, Hunter, Socialite, Spy" at Kimbel's, Wachesaw.

"The author of "The Gatekeeper," a fascinating biography of our nation's first female chief of staff and FDR's right hand for two decades, turns her journalistic skills to "The Fabulous Life of Gertrude Sanford Legendre." This remarkable South Carolinian’s life spanned the twentieth century, beginning in Aiken, S.C. in 1902 and ending at her plantation outside Charleston in 2000. She was a daring and fearless woman whose adventures included being the first American woman in uniform held as a POW by the Germans during World War II. She also partied on the Riviera with the Murphys, the Fitzgeralds and Harpo Marx in the 1920s, undertook numerous challenging expeditions for natural history museums (and lead four), and befriended some of the greatest personalities of the 20th century, including Dr. Albert Schweitzer, General George S. Patton, Lilly Pulitzer, and Bing Crosby. In her later years, she became an ardent conservationist, fighting for habitat preservation on the South Carolina coast and leaving her 7,000-acre Medway Plantation in a conservation easement, a place where "the beasts can grow old and die.""
