Welcome to the Pawleys Island/Litchfield SC CLASS website!
CLASS (Community Learning About Special Subjects) continues its 18th 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 House of Pancakes on Ocean Highway. We're just a little smaller but way brighter than before!
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, Nancy Grumman, Stephanie Hamlet, Zenobia Harper, Sharon Knost, Barbara Linderman, Mary Helen Lowrimore, Suz Mole, Sue Schirtzinger, Barnie Slice, Cindy Valentine, Kathy Welde, Jane Woodward and Jane Zalkin. 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 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...
Patti Callahan Henry
author of "The Idea of Love" at Kimbel's, Wachesaw.
"Screenwriter Harper has had two flops in succession. He needs a hit and he needs it badly. Empty of any new ideas and crippled with writer's block, he decides that he will "steal" a love story. He can't do that in Hollywood, of course, so he heads to the East Coast for a change of scenery, some new ideas, and above all, that good love story he needs. Taking on a fake identity as a historian interested in local folklore, he interviews townsfolk under the guise of getting to know their family stories. And in Bluff, SC, he meets Ella, a beautiful young woman who has lost her true love in a sailing accident; he drowned while saving her. Harper believes he has finally found his story: a love big enough to sacrifice your life for. But the thing is, Ella isn't telling the truth. Her husband left her; she has a crappy job selling wedding shoes, and she lost her best friend in the divorce. In desperate need of a love story herself, Ella tells Harper the story of the life she wishes she had, and in the process, she starts acting like the woman she wishes she'd always been. Every time Ella tells Harper more of the made-up version of her life - her idea of love - she thinks, "one more time." But soon they are both too deep into the lies to get out. Add dysfunctional families, small town chaos, eccentric neighbors and exes on both sides, the knot of lies looks too tight to undo. Can two people come together for all the wrong reasons and still make it right?"
