Reading together since 1878, the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle has remained a leader in adult education through quality programming.
Each summer, the CLSC chooses nine books of literary quality and invites the authors to Chautauqua present their work to an audience of approximately 1,000 readers.
Chautauqua Literary & Scientific Circle Vertical Theme 2015
Books chosen as Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle selections in 2015 will celebrate the theme of “truth and consequences.” In most cases, the book will complement the theme of its corresponding week. In all selections, exceptional writing will define the authors honored by the CLSC. Author programs are held Thursdays at 3:30 in the Hall of Philosophy unless otherwise noted.
Young Readers program
The CLSC Young Readers program encourages the enjoyment of good reading. The books have been chosen for their quality, the variety of styles and subjects, and their appeal to young adult readers. A special program is offered at 4:15 p.m. each Wednesday. Book selections and program information are fully described in the Young Readers brochure available in-season at the CLSC Veranda.
