2021 CLSC Membership

Founded in 1878, the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle is Chautauqua's first arts organization and one of the oldest continuous book discussion groups in the United States.

In order to graduate from the CLSC, members must pay four years of Membership Dues (for the full list of qualifications, visit the CLSC's webpage). Your first CLSC dues payment establishes your membership.

Current membership entitles you to a 20% discount on all CLSC and CLSC Young Reader books sold in the Chautauqua Bookstore and CLSC Octagon for the year, as well as a 10% discount on all other books in the Bookstore.  On our website, registered members receive a 20% discount on the current CLSC selections, and 10% off all other titles, including past selections and Young Reader books. (Due to technical constraints, there are several ways discounts apply slightly differently on web purchases.) 

Your dues support the operation of the CLSC, the appearance of the CLSC authors each summer, your recognition, and other CLSC efforts in support of literary inquiry.

[Have you already purchased a 2021 membership by other means, and are hoping to use your web discounts?  Create or sign in to your ChautauquaBookstore.com account, and let us know about your membership status through our Contact page.  Once we confirm your status, we'll set you up for discount access.]
