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?

  1. It must relate to books in either shape or theme (that is, look like a book, or be inspired by a book).
  2. 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.

Hope to see you all there!
