2013 International Edible Book Festival

Started in 2000 by an artist and a librarian, the International Edible Book Festival falls on or around April 1st each year and pays homage to the French gastronomer Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755–1826). Bibliophiles and food lovers around the world gather locally and virtually to celebrate the book arts and the (literal) ingestion of culture by constructing books made entirely of edible materials. Their work is displayed, judged, and subsequently eaten, and photographs are submitted to the International Edible Book Festival website. On April 3, 2013, BGC students and faculty participated by hosting our second annual celebration of "Edible Books Day."
