CLSC 2017 Selections

The CLSC is one of the oldest continuous book clubs in America and has remained a leader in adult education through quality programming. Each season the authors of the year's CLSC book selections address the weekly CLSC Roundtable/Lectures in the Hall of Philosophy. The CLSC has brought many Pulitzer Prize and National Book Club award winners to Chautauqua.

The CLSC is organized under a vertical theme each year, which is meant to help readers connect the books with a uniting element.  The theme for 2017 is “Community.”   Selections are listed below in the order in which they appeared in the year's program.
