My Sister's Books

Founded in 2002, Pawleys Island is a beautiful historic resort area, with locals and visitors from all around the world. A local success, My Sister’s Books was started by two sisters, Fran Clarkson and Bess Long, retired from the Navy. They are avid readers and wanted to have a place where people could trade books or discover new-to-them authors.
