Philadelphia, PA 19147

The International Edible Book Festival is held annually world-wide on April 1st, partially to celebrate the birthday of French gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755 – 1826), and partially to celebrate the fun of eating your own words.

An edible book can be simply defined as an edible object that somehow relates to books. It may integrate text, illustrate literary titles or content, or represent book form. You can read more about edible books at the official website,

Join us for refreshments, crafts, and, of course, edible books. Vote for your favorite and then eat it! Artists’ talks will take place at 4:30 and, while the votes are being tallied, the eating of the books will begin.
