The UMass Amherst Libraries invite you to join us in celebrating this year's Edible Book Festival on April 5, 2018. This festival has been celebrated internationally on or around April 1 since 2000 in commemoration of the birthday of gastronome and author Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. All members of the UMass Amherst community are invited to submit edible book-inspired creations which will then be displayed, judged, and eaten!

  • Each entry should depict a literary work (fiction or nonfiction) or a literary character.  Puns on titles are especially encouraged!

  • By entering the competition, you are granting permission for UMass Libraries to photograph your entry with the possibility of including it on our website, in our newsletter, or in ScholarWorks.
