2020 Chautauqua Prize Shortlist

Chautauqua Institution has announced seven exceptional books as the 2020 finalists for The Chautauqua Prize, now in its ninth year. A winner we be announced in late May.

Congratulations to all the finalists!

(A note to CLSC members: remember that while the prize-winning selection counts toward graduation requirements, the rest of the list will not.  We're excited about all of them, though, and you should read them anyway!)
