Great Jewish Books Summer Program
A week-long exploration of literature & culture for high school students
at the Yiddish Book Center, Amherst, MA
The Great Jewish Books Summer Program brings together eighteen rising high school juniors and seniors to read, discuss, argue about, and fall in love with some of the most powerful and enduring works of modern Jewish literature. Participants study with some of the nation’s most respected literary scholars, meet prominent contemporary authors, and connect with other teens from across the country. When asked what the highlight of the week was, one of last year’s students said, “The whole week was a highlight!” Enough said. This summer’s program runs from July 28 – August 4, 2013. The program is entirely free for accepted students, including tuition, rooms, meals, and a stack of incredible books. Applications are due March 15, 2013. Apply Now!
