Welcome to the Pawleys Island/Litchfield SC CLASS website!
CLASS (Community Learning About Special Subjects) is in its 19th year of providing adults with unique opportunities at the Litchfield Exchange! The CLASS/Moveable Feast office is located in Art Works at 14363 Ocean Highway, Pawleys Island, two miles south of Brookgreen Gardens, just behind Applewood House of Pancakes on U.S. 17.
Our hours are Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. But our answer machine works when we aren't (843-235-9600), and we can always be reached through ClassAtPawleys.com.

The CLASS Publishing Division is delighted to announce its newest publication: "Brookgreen Gardens: Through the Seasons in Images and Words," a collaborative creation with photographs by Anne Swift Malarich and poetry by community poets and Brookgreen staff and volunteers. The book is available at Art Works and at Brookgreen Gardens' Keepsakes. A sample of this magnificent testimony to the Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntingtons' generosity can be viewed at http://www.brookgreen.org/visit.html.
CLASS Publishing is pleased to promote William Woodson's debut novel, "Waccamaw Gold," and playwright/screenwriter Larry Ketron's first novel, "Bluffing." Both are available at local bookstores, through this website and Amazon.com. "Bluffing" is also carried by the Drama Book Shop in Manhattan. Kindle versions of the books are available on Amazon.com.

Description: CLASS Productions presents the fourth in its concert series at Kimbel Lodge, Hobcaw Barony, featuring Clay Brown. Hailing from Florence, South Carolina, he sang gospel harmony with his brother and cousins as child, then grew into rhythm and blues and his own band, Clay Brown and the Invaders, in 1967. After performing up and down the east coast, he became the lead vocalist for Al Brown's Orchestra in Manhattan. Back in South Carolina since the late '70s, Clay has performed with Bill Pinkney and the Original Drifters, Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs, Sonny Turner of the Platters, The Lettermen, Ruth Brown, Billy Scott and the Sugarbees. Now backed impressively by the Legends Band, the group is known for performing '60s soul music across the Carolinas. He also teaches and performs '50s and '60s music as part of a program on music history, along with Donald Ceasar and music historian Harry Turner, at public schools and venues throughout the region. The Kimbel Concert song list will include "My Girl," "Stand by Me," "You Send Me," "Georgia on my Mind," "Ain't too Proud to Beg," "Moon River," and "Ooh Baby Baby." His CD ("Old School") will be available at the concert. Seating for the limited audience, light refreshments and iced tea will be provided.

The Next Feast...
James J. Curtis
author of "High Hand" at Kimbel's, Wachesaw.
"Only two people stand in the way of a covert CIA takeover of the White House: Frank Adams, a recovering alcoholic who was once his newspaper's biggest star, and his ex-wife, Lisa Hawkes, a female James Bond exiled by the government. This remarkable debut spy thriller, combines the driving suspense found in Tom Clancy's books with John le Carré's textured tension. Curtis J. James is a pseudonym for the three writers who collaborated on this book. They are Curtis Harris, James Ellenberger, and James Rosen. Curtis Harris is a physician-scientist who is world renowned in the field of cancer research. James Ellenberger worked for nearly 30 years in numerous capacities with the national AFL-CIO. A Vietnam War veteran, he has traveled extensively in Asia and the Middle East. James Rosen is Pentagon correspondent for the McClatchy Co., based in its Washington, DC, bureau."
