More edible books! A friend asked me to post this to the book arts list:
Jan Owen

Friends of the Eastern Maine Community College Library
BOOKS2EAT returns for its third year in Bangor with a new emphasis on Maine 
food products. The Friends of the Eastern Maine Community College Library will 
be hosting BOOKS2EAT2004, an international Edible Book Festival and 
Friend-raiser, at Rangeley Hall on Sylvan Rd. from 3:30 to 5:30 pm on Wednesday, April 
14, 2004.  Anyone can contribute an edible book for display at the event, which 
also features high silver tea with refreshments ably concocted by EMCC 
Culinary Arts students. 
 
Those who submit an edible book will receive free admission.  All others pay 
a $7 entry fee at the door, which includes refreshments and five tickets to 
vote on the winning edible book. Books may be made of any ingredients that are 
edible and must represent a book (a real book or one of your own imagination), 
by either replicating an existing book and its cover art or by creating your 
own. In addition to the first prize, a new award will be presented this year 
for the best use of Maine food products in an edible book entry.
 
High tea will be served featuring Maine food products such as smoked salmon, 
blueberries, cheese, apples, etc. Voting on the edible book entries will take 
place from 3:30 - 4:30 pm. after which the entries will be utterly consumed!  
The organizers would particularly like to extend an invitation to participate 
to all students enrolled in culinary arts programs, as well as chefs, 
caterers, and creative book lovers and artists.
 For more information, or to submit an entry, contact Deb Perro,
