Here are The Moveable Feast March 2015 Luncheons:




Descent by Tim Johnston

Friday, March 6, 2015 at Inlet Affairs

Tim Johnston is the author of the novel Descent, the story collection Irish Girl, and the novel Never So Green. Published in 2009, the stories of Irish Girl won an O. Henry Prize, the New Letters Award for Writers, and the Gival Press Short Story Award, while the collection itself won the 2009 Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction. His new novel, Descent, is about a family undone by the disappearance of a daughter who went out for a morning run and didn’t come back. The girl’s vanishing – on a sunny, late-summer vacation morning – all the more devastating for its mystery, is the beginning of the family’s harrowing journey down increasingly divergent and solitary paths, until all that continues to bind them to each other are the questions they can never bring themselves to ask: At what point does a family stop searching? At what point does a girl stop fighting for her life?




Classic Carolina Road Trips by Tom Poland

Friday, March 13, 2015 at Prestwick Country Club, Surfside Beach

In the course of writing seven books about South Carolina, Poland has been to spots and secret places with appeal all their own, and learned that you don’t have to go abroad to experience marvelous places nor do you need to flock to the clichéd “must see” venues. Rustic beauty, natural areas, history, and interesting sights and places surround the Midlands.




Genevieve “Sister” Peterkin’s Heaven is a Beautiful Place 

by William (Billy) Baldwin & Lee Brockington

Friday, March 20, 2015 at Tara Ballroom, Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort

The reissue of the late “Sister” Peterkin’s memoir of growing up and old in Murrells Inlet is cause for celebration, and Billy and Lee know how to celebrate. Attend this special event to honor her memory. This Moveable Feast also serves as a benefit for The Library Center-Waccamaw.




First Light by Bill Noel

Friday, March 27, 2015 at Austin’s Ocean One Restaurant

The ninth return engagement by Bill Noel and his Folly Beach Mystery series. This one finds Chris Landrum enjoying an early-morning walk on the small island that he calls home until a stranger joins him. A car barrels toward them, slams the stranger into the hereafter, and throws Chris’s peaceful life of retirement into a tailspin. The police say the death is a tragic accident but Chris knows better. His suspicion is reinforced when a second man is murdered just hours later. The only thing the victims had in common was First Light, Folly Beach’s newest place of worship, a church that meets on the beach, ministers to nontraditional churchgoers, and is led by Preacher Burl Ives Costello.
