Postponed: Edible Book Festival
April 18, 2020, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
STAY TUNED FOR A RESCHEDULED DATE. We look forward to sharing edible books with you when it is safe to gather.
The Soapbox Community Print Shop and Zine Library is pleased to partner once again with the Philadelphia Center for the Book to host the Edible Book Festival, an event celebrated by bibliophiles and gastronomes alike. The International Edible Book Festival is held worldwide, around the beginning of April, in part to celebrate the birthday of French Gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), and to celebrate the fun of eating your own words! An edible book can be simply defined as an edible object that somehow relates to books. It may integrate text, illustrate literary titles or content, or represent book form. You can read more about edible books at the official festival website, www.books2eat.com.
Join us for refreshments, bookmaking activities, and of course, edible books! Prizes will be awarded to the most delicious book, the best book structure, the punniest book, and the audience favorite! All books will be eaten by the attendees at the end of the day. You do not need to make a book to attend, but are encouraged to flex your literary and culinary muscles to celebrate our two favorite things: Eating and Reading!
In Collaboration with Philadelphia Center for the Book www.philadelphiacenterforthebook.org
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATE, SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 2020
