CU-Edible Book Festival

Apr 5, 2010

Please join us for the 5th Champaign-Urbana Edible Book Festival.   Bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers will gather to celebrate the book arts and the (literal) ingestion of culture.  Participants will create edible books to be exhibited, documented, and then consumed. Photographs of all entries will appear in the Edible Book Festival online gallery.   This year we're holding two separate events.
