Edible Book Festival 2009- It’s time to cook the books!
Participate in Millikin’s first Edible Book Festival on Wednesday, April 1st from 11am-2pm (second floor gallery area at Staley Library)!
Books will be eaten! Prizes will be awarded!
Money will be donated to a good cause!
The International Edible Book Festival is held annually at libraries worldwide on or around April 1st to celebrate the birthday of French “foodie” Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), author of the book “Physiologie du Goût.” This year, Staley Library will join in the fun!
What is an edible book, you ask?
- It must relate to books in either shape or theme (that is, look like a book, or be inspired by a book).
- It must be edible (typical examples are made from cake, crackers, bread, fruit, vegetables, candy, etc.).
Take a look at some examples from past festivals at: www.books2eat.com
Any individual or campus group/department
is invited to enter an edible book in the festival.
For further information on registering, visit the website.
Hope to see you all there!
