2020 CLSC Selections
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 at least nine books of literary quality and invites the authors to Chautauqua present their work to an audience of approximately 1,000 readers.
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 2020 is "This Land."
As of 8/26/20, we have signed bookplates from Dahr Jamail, Monica Sok, Tim Maughan, Susan Straight, Maurice Carlos Ruffin, David Treuer, and Viet Thanh Nguyen. If you would like a signed edition of their books, please let us know in your order comments!
