Description


Before university and college extension courses, before the Book of the Month Club and Oprah's Book Club, before educational television, the Internet, and MOOC's -- there was the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle (CLSC).

Designed to give busy adults the chance to have a college student's outlook on life, this correspondence course evolved into a required reading program with all the pomp and circumstance of a college graduation. The CLSC reached people in small-town America and around the world. In 2018, the CLSC will celebrate its 140th anniversary as it continues to provide an opportunity for life-long learning and companionship in a group committed to intellectual growth at any age.

About the Author


Mary Lee Talbot is a Presbyterian minister, author and editor, director of administrative services for People Helping People International, and a life-long Chautauquan.
