AJS Honors Its Authors

AJS 50th Annual Conference
December 17, 2018
Sheraton Boston

Sponsored by Jewish Book Council's Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature

The Association for Jewish Studies and Jewish Book Council would like to celebrate your new book!

The AJS and the Jewish Book Council (JBC) will recognize AJS members’ 2018 books with a special brochure featuring book details, a dedicated display of the books at the JBC Booth at the AJS Annual Conference, and a special coffee break in the Book Exhibit Hall on Monday, December 17 sponsored by the Jewish Book Council. Books will also be displayed at the respective publisher booths throughout the Exhibit Hall.

To submit a title for the catalog, please complete the online form before September 5. For books to be featured, authors must be AJS members for the 2018–2019 membership year. [If you have not yet renewed your membership for the coming year (effective September 1), please do so at this link.]

Even if your book is not yet physically in print, you may submit it now as long as you have:

Date of publication
13-digit ISBN
List price
Hi-res PDF of book’s cover

If you wish to have your book included in the display, please mail one copy to AJS (Attn: Michelle Katz, 15 W. 16th St., NYC 10011) no later than Wednesday, November 21st. Also note that JBC cannot accept books on site. If you are attending the conference, you may collect your copy at the end of the book exhibit (12:15 pm on Tuesday, December 18, 2018); otherwise books will be donated. AJS cannot return/mail back any copies that are not retrieved at the conference.

We look forward to greeting you at the Jewish Book Council Booth.
