Edible Books Festival

What is an Edible Books Festival?

The Edible Books Festival is where the worlds of books and food collide in creative and delicious ways.  Create an edible work of art inspired by your favorite book or author. Let your creative juices flow! Have fun with puns, or create something in the shape of a book. Draw inspiration from previous years' entries and the International Edible Books Festival.

Entries may be made from anything that is edible (cake, bread, crackers, gelatin, fruit, vegetables, candy, etc.) as long as it can be displayed for a few hours without spoiling or melting.

Participation is open to all members of the Sewanee community.
