The Columbus-Lowndes Public Library System will host its third annual Edible Book Festival at the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library Thursday, April 11 from 4 p.m.-5:30 p.m. as part of the library's celebration of National Library Week. 

 

Edible books are made of food and are inspired by literary titles, characters, or authors. 

 

Since its inception in 1999, the International Edible Book Festival is held annually on or around April 1, the birthday of Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), the French author of a witty book on food entitled "Physiologie du gout." Dozens of libraries and cultural organizations around the world have held their own festivals to celebrate his work. 

 

Festival organizers are accepting submissions from the general public, local bakeries and restaurants for the festival. Awards will be given for Most PUNderful, Most Visually Appealing, and People's Choice. 

 

Deadline for registration is Friday, April 5. Entry forms are available at the Columbus library at 314 Seventh St. N., of contact Mona Vance-Ali at 662-329-5304 or [email protected]
