Literacy Volunteers Atlanta and the Southeast Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers invite book artists, book lovers, chefs and foodies of all ages to cook up a literary feast.

What is an Edible Book?
An edible book is just that -- a book that is edible, made out of food rather than paper and board.  But the festival embraces more than books… it includes anything book related, such as a scene or character from a book, book covers, or book structures … the sky’s the limit!

How to begin?
What's your favorite food?  Chocolate?  Cheese?  Vegetables?  Materials can be any food items that will make an edible book or book-related food art. Visit the market with a new view of food as an art material. Imagine books of broccoli, tart tomes, pages of pasta… you get the idea. 
Please join us as we enjoy our books and eat them too.
