The Fifth Annual Samuel Minot Jones Awards for Literary Achievement will honor the Amherst Regional High School Theater Program, led by John Bechtold and Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author Madeleine Blais. The gala event, the “Sammys”, will take place on Thursday, April 26, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. at the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College.
The Sammys is Amherst’s signature event honoring the community’s remarkable and vibrant literary heritage. The evening will begin in the beautiful Mead galleries with delicious, abundant hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine from local breweries/vineyards, a signature cocktail, and live music. The awards ceremony will be held next door in comfortable Stirn Auditorium, where the evening will end with coffee and a take-away chocolate confection.
All proceeds from the Sammys will be used to support Library collections, purchasing materials in all formats and for all ages. For more info & tickets visit the Jones Library online at www.joneslibrary.org/sammys.
