Welcome to the Pawleys Island/Litchfield SC CLASS website!
CLASS (Community Learning About Special Subjects) begins its 16th year of providing adults with unique opportunities led by talented instructors in a casual environment for the pure joy of learning. The CLASS office, along with Art Works and the Moveable Feast, is located inside the Chocolate & Coffee House at the Litchfield Exchange, two miles south of Brookgreen Gardens, just behind Applewood's.
Fridays (and some weekdays!)CLASS presents Moveable Feasts, literary luncheons featuring exciting authors at area restaurants. And this spring two events hosted by local treasure Lee Brockington will benefit the new Waccamaw Library - an overnight on Sandy Island and a weekend in Murrells Inlet.
The new CLASS Publishing Division is proud to promote William Woodson's debut novel, "Waccamaw Gold," with book signings throughout the southeast. Our second publication, Larry Ketron's first novel, "Bluffing," debuts at the Moveable Feast on May 2 at Ocean One.

The Next Feast...
author of "Seventh Mirror" at Ocean One.
"Like his father and grandfather before him, Fergus Greybar the Fourth travels the countryside in a wagon of carnival mirrors, pulled by two magnificent white horses named Look and See. As the Mirror Man, he is welcomed everywhere by children who find delight in seeing themselves take on strange and funny shapes when looking into the six mirrors that line the inside of his wagon. But there is another mirror, one of great magic – the Seventh Mirror. In it, children see themselves not as they are, but as they wish to be."
