The Edible Book Festival is an annual event that unites bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers across the world. Participants show off their culinary creativity by creating an edible book- a dish based on a book or a pun of a book title. These are put on display and then consumed by festival attendants. Ivy Tech Library’s festival is free and open to Ivy Tech students, employees, and the general public—so invite a friend! The first Edible Book Festival was created by Judith A. Hoffberg and Beatrice Coron in 2000, and has since been celebrated by libraries, bookstores, and other book lovers in over a dozen countries.
It will be held on Monday, April 7th, 2014 in the hallways of the Student Life Center, which is located on Ivy Tech’s North Campus in Fort Wayne (3701 Dean Drive). Set up Entries: 11am – 12pm . View Entries: 12pm to 1pm. Taste Entries: 1pm to 2pm
To display your own edible book in the Festival, complete a registration form by Thursday, March 13th, 2014. Anyone can enter this event! The more the yummier! All participants will receive a $10 gift card as a “Thank You”. Also any participating artist or business is welcome to display business cards with their entry.
