Edible Book Festival: April 1

Do you like books, the culinary arts, winning prizes? Enter the Libraries’ Edible Book Festival Competition! The Festival will take place Monday, April 1, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Fenwick Library, Room 1014 (yes, we realize this is “April Fool’s Day” but this is no joke!).

Edible Book Festivals feature creative food projects that draw their inspiration from books and stories. Edible books might physically resemble books, or they might refer to an aspect of a story, or they might incorporate text. Judges select winners for an array of light-hearted prize categories, such as “Best Literary Pun” or “Most Delicious Looking.” The Festivals are a great way to celebrate both book-making culture and the culinary arts. Edible Book Festivals began with the Books2Eat website in 2000 and is now celebrated internationally.
