Edible Book Festival – it’s coming!
Join Pitt SCALA as we celebrate the Edible Book Festival this Sunday, April 1, from 10 am – noon. We’ll be at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh LYNCS location in the Pittsburgh Public Market. Come and celebrate “the ingestion of culture and a way to concretely share a book; it is also a deeper reflexion on our attachment to food and our cultural differences” (Books2eat).
There will be clever creations on display, made by graduate students in the Library and Information Science program at the University of Pittsburgh and the Food Studies program at Chatham University! Vote on your favorites by donating money (in any amount – big or small!) to Book ‘Em, a local non-profit that sends reading materials to prisoners in Pennsylvania and across the country.
When you vote, you’ll get a raffle ticket that gives you a chance to win a prize basket filled with great items from vendors in the Market. The creation that earns the most money for Book ‘Em will also receive a prize basket and the raffle and prize ceremony will happen at noon. And, if you get hungry looking at all the creations, there all the great vendors in the Market to visit. Oh, we’ll also have free cookies to munch on.
