2016 Edible Book Festival

What is the Edible Books Festival?

Around the world, bibliophiles, book artists and food lovers alike gather to celebrate the art of books through food. Participants create an “edible book”, which is a culinary interpretation of any book, character, literary pun, or plot.

Edible Books Festival is open to all faculty, staff, students and the community-at-large. Photographs of the event, winners, and all edible books will appear in the Edible Book Festival photo gallery after the event.
