Amherst Reads - Past Featured Books

In August of 2018, we celebrated 10 years of Amherst Reads features! We have shared more than 100 books from alumni, faculty and staff. Amherst is proud of our authors and we look forward to continuing this tradition.

We encourage the Amherst community to continue to explore each of our feature books. Click on a book below to read reviews and excerpts, listen to interviews and learn more about the authors.
