When was the last time that you sat down and digested the contents of a book? I mean literally tore it open and began eating into the book? Not following me? That’s OK, because on Sunday, March 30th, 2014 from 4-8pm, the Western New York Book Arts Center (WNYBC) will be hosting the Sixth Annual International Edible Book Festival, where attendees will be able to sample a number of delicious books cooked up by bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers.
But first, WNYBAC is looking for people to create their own tasty versions of whatever tomes sound appealing.
The books can be made by anyone who would like to create a 100% edible edition of a published book. Then the entries will be exhibited, documented, judged, and consumed. Celebrity judges will rate the books according to the following categories: Best Book, Best Tasting, and Most Creative. Winners wii be announced around 7pm, with prizes awarded at that time.
This is an all ages festival – on that day, WNYBAC will be offering an edible book kids craft activity where young chefs and bakers can try their hands at making their own edible books, so don’t leave the little guys at home.
To register an edible book, head to WNYBAC’s website or by stop into the Western New York Book Arts Center during the hours of 12-6pm, Wednesday-Saturday.
Registration will be accepted until Saturday, March 29th, 2014 at noon.
Admission is $5 ($3 for members of WNYBAC)
