Edible Books & The Big Read - April 1st

It can look like a book, it can act like a book, it can be a pun on a book...
The only rule: it must be edible!

Artists with a culinary streak, chefs with artistic flair, and book lovers are invited to participate by whipping up an edible book for this event which takes place on Wednesday, April 1st at venues around the world. Prize categories: Most Likely To Be Burned, Most Likely To Be Devoured, Most Out Of This World, Most Likely To Be Made Into a Truffaut Film, Most Magical.

Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury’s classic parable of literature under threat of destruction. Bradbury will be honored at this year’s Manifest celebration at Columbia College Chicago following the Library’s Big Read month-long programming in April and May focusing on Fahrenheit 451.

The Big Read at Columbia College Chicago features readings, panel discussions, book discussion group
gatherings, lectures by national authors, film screenings, demonstrations, and a number of other exciting and creative events held here at Columbia College Chicago, as well as throughout the Chicagoland area. Free copies of Fahrenheit 451 and supplementary materials such as Reader’s and Teachers Guides will be available at all Big Read events.
