Edible Book Festival 2016

Join us for our 11th annual Edible Book Festival. KBAC joins libraries and book arts centers from around the world in this delightful April Fool’s celebration of the art of the book! The Edible Book Festival is celebrated in over 20 countries including Australia, Brazil, India, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, New Zealand, and Russia.

Entering is simple — submit a “book” made from good things to eat and you could win a prize! There are three categories: People’s Choice; Judge’s Choice, Judged by Jamie Kavanaugh of O’Duffy’s Pub, Cosmos Cucina and Kalamazoo Color Lab, and Children’s Category, judged by Sue Warner, Head Librarian of youth services at the Kalamazoo Public Library. Anyone can enter and there are no fees or pre-registration required. Visit the pages below to see entries from previous years and to get ideas.
