Join us for this gala celebration on April 16 at 6 pm at the Yiddish Book Center, as we honor local author Julius Lester and Pat & Peter Schneider, founders of Amherst Writers & Artists, with the 2015 Samuel Minot Jones Awards for Literary Achievement.
The Sammys is fast becoming known as Amherst's signature event honoring our community's remarkable and vibrant literary heritage. The evening will feature a lively awards ceremony, food, drink, and entertainment. Tickets are available in the Jones Library main office during regular business hours, or can be purchased online.
Premium tickets are $100 per person, and include an autographed giclée by author/illustrator Diane deGroat, as well as a tax deductible donation to the Jones Library.
