The Chautauqua Prize

The Chautauqua Prize logoAwarded annually since 2012, The Chautauqua Prize draws upon Chautauqua Institution’s considerable literary legacy to celebrate a book that provides a richly rewarding reading experience and to honor the author for a significant contribution to the literary arts.

(A note to CLSC members: while Chautauqua Prize Winners are not technically CLSC selections, they do count toward graduation requirements.)
