SHARP 2019 meets in the Pioneer Valley of near-Western Massachusetts.  The area is home to the Five Colleges of Amherst, Hampshire, Mt. Holyoke, & Smith Colleges and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, with a convenient bus service linking the five campuses, ensuring access to the library collections of all institutions. The Valley is an inviting and book-forward community, home to many writers, publishers, fine press printers, book binders, and book artists of national and international renown.
