Amherst Authors Book Club

All Jones Library Book Clubs are open to new members. Join us!


Our book club focuses on books by non-contemporary Amherst authors. All are welcome to join us. Check the schedule below for meeting dates. Because these books are often out of print and hard to obtain through interlibrary loan, we have purchased copies for the first 12 registrants. Books are available in Special Collections. For more information, contact Jones Library staff member Cyndi Harbeson at

Sponsored by the Friends of the Jones Library System.
