What is the Edible Book Festival?
Edible Book Day falls on April 1st, but libraries around the world celebrate with events held anytime in March or April. The
Edible Book Day's official website says:
"All edible books must be 'bookish' through the integration of text, literary inspiration or, quite simply, the form."
If you have questions about this year's book festival at DU, please contact
Zeffie Starling. Thanks!
