State Library of NSW, Macquarie Street, Sydney NSW 2000
Eaten any good books lately?
Some of my work colleagues took part in the Edible Book Festival showing off their cooking skills and creativity. Eleven themed masterpieces were displayed for staff to view and then subsequently have the chance to eat except for the Blood Stained Tea Cosy which wasn't quite edible. Alex Byrne (NSW State Librarian & Chief Executive) judged the entries for Most Creative, Least Edible, Best Fiction and Best Non-Fiction. It was a fun event that hopefully will attract more people to participate next year.
Participation rules are as follows:
1 The event must be held on April 1st (or close to that date)
2 All edible books must be "bookish" through the integration of text, literary inspiration or, quite simply, the form.
3 Organizations or individual participants must send a link to their photo album or upload pictures on Facebook and see to it that the event is immortalized on the web and share the fun.
