books2eat

Today Denison University Library participated in the Books2Eat. Books2Eat is formally called the International Edible Books Festival¬†with over 20 countries participating in a day of literally eating your words. According to the official website, the festival takes place every year to honor the birthday of French foodie Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (there’s a mouthful) and take advantage of April Foolery.

Here are a few of my favorites from today.

Going Bananas for Dr. Suess - yes, Suess. Hey, it was made by students at Granville Middle School and won Most Creative (no one took off points for spelling).
