The CLSC has been a leader in adult education, community reading, and literary engagement for nearly 150 years. Each summer, the CLSC adds at least nine more exceptional books to our Historic Booklist of more than 800 selections—and the authors visit Chautauqua to present their works. Readers can become members of the CLSC Class of 2018 and the Alumni Association by reading any 12 books from the Historic Booklist.
The CLSC also presents a Young Readers program, with weekly activities and discussions of children’s and young adult literature. For CLSC and Young Readers Program information visit CLSC.chq.org.
