2022 CLSC Young Readers Selections Announced!

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.

New for the 2022 Summer Assembly, we’ve expanded the Young Readers selections to include titles for early readers and their families. Weekly book discussions and themed activities will be held at 1 p.m. Sundays on the Hultquist Center porch. We encourage all families and kids to join us at these sessions whether you’ve finished reading the week’s book or are waiting to get started.

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