2019 CLSC Young Readers Selections

Chautauqua Institution is a community that values and celebrates reading, and since 1994, the CLSC Young Readers program has engaged young Chautauquans and community members in the enjoyment of good reading. Each summer, a selection of books are chosen for their quality, the variety of their styles and subjects, and their appeal to young readers.  While aimed at 9- to 14-year-olds, these books will also delight younger and older readers.

Visit youngreaders.chq.org for more information on the program.
