April 1st, 2017, bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers around the world gather to celebrate the book arts where participants create an “edible book,” which can be inspired by a favorite tale, involve a pun on a famous title, or simply be in the shape of a book (or scroll, or tablet, etc). All entries will be exhibited, documented, then EATEN! Photographs of all edible books will appear in the Edible Book Festival gallery.
The Champaign-Urbana Edible Book Festival is sponsored by the University Library and Common Ground Coop, and supported by the generous help of campus and community volunteers and prize donors.
