Eating Books by Richard Jones

The International Edible Book Festival has been held annually since 2000 in countries around the world and it is coming to Drew University for the first time in 2017! The Edible Book Festival celebrates literary works through food: illustrating book titles, making puns, or bringing characters to life. Entries to the contest must be “bookish” through the integration of text, literary inspiration or, quite simply, by looking like a book. Submit your own edible book or come vote for your favorite.  More information and entry rules will be posted on the library website by March 1.
