What is the Edible Book Festival?
Around April 1st, bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers around the world gather to celebrate the book arts and the (literal!) ingestion of culture. Participants create an "edible book," which is an edible, culinary interpretation of any book, literary pun, book character, or plot. Photographs of all edible books will appear in the Edible Book Festival photo gallery.
Edible Books Festival is open to all faculty, staff, students and the community-at-large.
