Edible Book Festival

April 18, 2020
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Soapbox Community Print Shop and Zine Library


The Philadelphia Center for the Book and the Soapbox Community Print Shop and Zine Library are partnering once again to present the 2020 Edible Book Festival. an event celebrated by bibliophiles and gastronomes alike. The International Edible Book Festival is held worldwide, around the beginning of April, in part to celebrate the birthday of French Gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), and to celebrate the fun of eating your own words!

Join us for refreshments, bookmaking activities, and of course, edible books! Prizes will be awarded to the most delicious book, the best book structure, the punniest book, and the audience favorite! All books will be eaten by the attendees at the end of the day. You do not need to make a book to attend, but are encouraged to flex your literary and culinary muscles to celebrate our two favorite things: Eating and Reading!
