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.
Art Works features local artists including Terry Belanger, Kathi Bixler, Nancy Bracken, Roger Cleveland, Gwen Coley, Millie Doud, Zenobia Harper, Sharon Knost, Barbara Linderman, Mary Helen Lowrimore, Suz Mole, Barnie Slice, M.P. "Squeaky" Swenson, Cindy Valentine, Kathy Welde and Jane Woodward. Come see their new creations!
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.

The Next Feast...
author of "The Gatekeeper: Missy LeHand, FDR and the Untold Story" at Inlet Affairs.
"The first biography of arguably the most influential member of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's administration, Marguerite "Missy" LeHand, FDR's de facto chief of staff, who has been misrepresented, mischaracterized, and overlooked throughout history … until now. Widely considered the first female presidential chief of staff, Marguerite "Missy" LeHand was the right-hand woman to Franklin Delano Roosevelt – both personally and professionally – for more than twenty years. Although her official title as personal secretary was relatively humble, her power and influence were unparalleled. Everyone in the White House knew one truth: If you wanted access to Franklin, you had to get through Missy. She was one of his most trusted advisors, affording her a unique perspective on the president that no one else could claim, and she was deeply admired and respected by Eleanor and the Roosevelt children. With unprecedented access to Missy's family and original source materials, journalist Kathryn Smith tells the captivating and forgotten story of the intelligent, loyal, and clever woman who had a front-row seat to history in the making. "The Gatekeeper" is a thoughtful, revealing unsung-hero story about a woman ahead of her time, the true weight of her responsibility, and the tumultuous era in which she lived – and a long overdue tribute to one of the most important female figures in American history."
