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.
In unity with Chautauqua’s inter-arts collaboration on American expansionism, books chosen as Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle selections in 2014 will also celebrate the themes of exploration and discovery. 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.
