International Edible Book Festival

The International Edible Book Festival is an annual event usually held on or around April 1, which is also known as Edible Book Day. The global event has been celebrated since 2000 in various parts of the world, where "edible books" are created, displayed, and small events are held. The creations are photographed and then consumed. The event was initiated by Judith A. Hoffberg and Béatrice Coron in 2000 to to commemorate the birthday of French gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755–1826), noted for his book Physiologie du goût, a witty meditation on food. Chatham University has been celebrating this fun international event since 2012 as a collaboration between the JKM Library and Food Studies program.
