SIFT’s second-annual Edible Book Festival – April 6


SIFT presents its second-annual Edible Book Festival–which is part of a nationwide effort to make “books” one can eat–from 1 – 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 6, at the Alvar Library (913 Alvar St.). Participants create edible books that are exhibited, documented for the international edible book archive, judged for fabulous prizes, and then eaten by attendees. Admission is free with an edible book or a canned food item to donate to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans.

For a schedule of events, including live music, and more information on precisely what an “edible book” entails, visit SIFT’s website.

Here are some images from last year’s festival in New Orleans:
