CLSC Bryant Day

Bryant Day marks the beginning of the reading year. Originally, it was held in the fall; this ceremony commemorates William Cullen Bryant’s interest in, and encouragement of, the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle in 1878. Traditionally, at the end of the brief service the Bryant Bell in the Miller Bell Tower will be rung by graduates of the CLSC, particularly the newest members from this year’s class. Some CLSC selections for next year will be announced as well.
