The New York Chautauqua Institute CLSC 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 members choose two books to read during the off-season for discussion at the Round Table Discussions each summer.
The Lakeside Chapter of the CLSC was re-established in 2006. Membership in the CLSC is open to anyone interested in reading, learning and discussing a variety of literary works, both fiction and nonfiction. For additional information, please contact Dolly Andler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
