Edible book festival? Say what?

submitted by holleric@augsburg.edu

Calling all cooks who love books! Lindell Library is hosting its first ever Edible Books Festival on Wednesday, April 1 and no, this is no April Fool’s joke! On that date, libraries around the world will host their own edible books festival and this year Lindell Library will join in the fun. To participate, you simply need to make a dish based on a book title or character or a literary theme, then enter it in the festival. Get creative, and the punnier you are, the better! Think: Lord of the Fries… Don Chipotle… For Whom the Taco Bell Tolls! Or, play it straight with Grapes of Wrath or James and the Giant Peach. To learn more about edible book festivals, see this Atlas Obscura article at https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/edible-book-festival.
