Eat Your Words: Edible Book Festival

March 26, 2016, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

We’re joining foodies and book-lovers around the globe in this year’s annual Edible Book Festival, co-hosted with the Philadelphia Center for the Book. Anyone is invited to bring their own edible interpretation of their favorite book or book structure to compete for prizes and, of course, bragging rights. The only rule is that all entries must be bookish through the integration of text, literary inspiration, or, quite simply, the form. And please note: all books will be eaten by the end of the evening, so while tastiness is not required, it is highly recommended.

This event is a potluck. Everyone must bring an edible book, or a dish to share. Location is a private residence in South Philadelphia: Address will be given upon registration.

You can visit books2eat or view images from last year’s Eat Your Words event or from previous Edible Book Fests hosted by the Philadelphia Center for the Book to jump start your brainstorming. Plan to bring an entry? Please let us know to expect your entry when you register.

This event is FREE and participation is open to all.
