Hot 5: Edible Book Festival



What do the Dylan documentary Eat the Document, the bestselling book (and drippy film adaptation) Eat Pray Love, and Ang Lee’s Eat Drink Man Woman have in common? Not one will actually feed you, except perhaps on a metaphorical level. At an Edible Book Festival, however, you can chow down on all sorts of meaty tomes (provided you have an appetite for tasty puns). The annual event is held throughout the world on or near April 1, and year four includes three entry categories—professional, amateur, and young adult—and prizes will be awarded for “Most Book-like,” “Most Creative,” and “Best Tasting.” Past subjects include a Catcher in the Rye made of actual rye bread, a self-explanatory James and the Giant Peach, and a copy of Meat Loaf’s memoir To Hell and Back “written” on … well, you get the idea.

5–8 p.m. on Friday, April 1, at WNY Book Arts Center, 468 Washington St.; 348-1430 or www.wnybookarts.org.
