What's this all about?

The Edible Books Festival is an International Event, with participation from venues in countries from Australia to Luxembourg to the United States, and almost everywhere in between. The festival was created by Judith A. Hoffberg and Beatrice Coron in 1999, and has grown ever since. Click here for the official site.

Myrin's first Edible Books Festival was held in 2005, led by student assistant Jessica Gallagher. Take a look at pictures from the past two years, too. Any questions or comments, please e-mail Diane Skorina.
