The Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle (CLSC) began reading together in 1878.

Each summer, the CLSC chooses at least nine books of literary quality and invites the authors to Chautauqua to present their work to an audience of approximately 1,000 readers.

To be determined

  • Book choices will be limited to CLSC books none of us have read.
     

  • Book choices will be limited to those CLSC books that are available on audio.

    You do NOT have to listen to the audio book. However, since Steve is no longer able to read print books the audio books are working great for him. If you're struggling to read, try listening to an audio version. 

If you have questions,

please email Shawndra

Aphasia-Friendly CLSC Circle (book club)

If you love to read but struggle with aphasia, join us!

Shawndra & Steve are starting this book club to

2) talk about the books we read,

3) offer a safe, friendly and encouraging place for those struggling with aphasia to talk about the books we read.

You do NOT have to have aphasia to join the Circle.
