Welcome to the Pawleys Island/Litchfield SC CLASS website!
CLASS (Community Learning About Special Subjects) opens its 17th year of providing adults with unique opportunities in "new/old" space! We have moved the CLASS office, along with Art Works and the Moveable Feast, into its original space next door to the Chocolate & Coffee House in the Litchfield Exchange, two miles south of Brookgreen Gardens, just behind Applewood's. We're just a little smaller but way brighter than before!
Our new 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 Linda can always be reached at email@example.com.
Art Works featured local artists include Kathi Bixler, Nancy Bracken, Gwen Coley, Millie Doud, Nancy Grumman, Sharon Knost, Barbara Linderman, Mary Helen Lowrimore, Danny McLaughlin, Suz Mole, Susie Schirtzinger, Barnie Slice, Kathy Welde and Jane Woodward. Come see their new creations!
The new CLASS Publishing Division is proud to promote William Woodson's debut novel, "Waccamaw Gold," and 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 now available on Amazon.com.
Fridays (and some weekdays!) CLASS presents Moveable Feasts, literary luncheons featuring exciting authors at area restaurants. To register or receive the schedule for the Moveable Feasts, call 843-235-9600, stop by our new gallery in the Litchfield Exchange for a copy, or click on the topic of your choice at the top of this page.

The Next Feast...
Bernie Schein & Maggie Schein
author of "Famous All Over Town and Lost Cantos of the Ouroboros Caves" at Ocean One.
"Novelist Walker Percy once said that the only remaining unexplored territory in Southern literature was the Jewish southerner. Schein's first novel stakes a claim on Percy's unexplored terrain with a comically candid multi-generational account of two Jews, a lowcountry native and a Northern transplant, at the epicenter of momentous events in the sleepy southern coastal hamlet of Somerset, a fictitious stand-in for Schein's native Beaufort. Delving beneath the surface of the Southern status quo, the tale follows interconnected lives through the private and public upheavals in small-town life from the turbulent 1960s to the eve of the new millennium, confronting the ramifications of the civil rights era, Vietnam, Watergate and – closer to home – a deadly version of the infamous Ribbon Creek incident. Plus! Bernie's daughter Maggie presents a collection of fables in the literary tradition of Italo Calvino (if he were a Taoist seeker). Lost Cantos brings together medicine men, monks, immortals, witches, seekers, souls in various stages of their cycles in and out of lived-life, and the occasional talking animal, all searching for the meaning of it all and each other. Fragile and beautifully strong, the Lost Cantos are tales and mythology for anyone seeking stories for a larger life. Pat Conroy writes, "Her realm is timeless and enchanted and braided together with all the power and seduction of myth herself. Maggie Schein writes like a fallen angel, and I was there on the night of her birth.""
