The Lakeside Chautauqua Literary & Scientific Circle (CLSC) is a local organization affiliated with the New York Chautauqua Institute CLSC, which was formed in 1878 to support reading and learning about nature, art, literature, philosophy and science. The New York chapter provides a reading list each year, from which the local membership chooses two books to read during the off-season for discussion at the round table sessions each summer.


Membership

Membership in the CLSC is open to anyone interested in reading, learning and discussing a wide variety of literary works, both fiction and nonfiction. The long-term goal of all members of the CLSC is to read 12 works from an approved list of books that extends back to the year 1878. Those who complete this task are honored as official graduates of the CLSC.
