All books will be eaten by the attendees at the end of the day. You do not need to make a book to attend, but are encouraged to flex your literary and culinary muscles to celebrate our two favorite things: Eating and Reading!

Other activities include a make-and-take recipe book, BYOT (bring your own T-shirt) screenprinting station (totes will be available for purchase), a food-themed selection of zines in the library, and tours of the Soapbox Print Shop! We will also be collecting bookbinding tools and supplies in support of the Tyler School of Art Bookbinding Club.  Get your spring cleaning done and bring unused paper, thread, board, and other materials these students can use to hone their skills.

For inspiration, check out this Edible Book Gallery. Free to attend, but you must bring a creation to enter for the prizes. RSVP via the Facebook event, or email

Upcoming Workshop
Storage Books with Susan Viguers
Saturday, April 27, 2019
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Registration opens Tuesday, April 2 at 12:00 PM

In this workshop you will construct a simple storage book made of folded card stock in which windows have been cut, held together with a spine. What is stored need not be flat, although it is easier to work with pieces that are less than about 1/16 inch thick. We will be making a model and then, if time, a more fully realized book. Images and thin objects to be stored will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own.

All needed tools will be supplied, but, if you have them, bring any of the following: scissors, glue stick, X-Acto knife, cutting mat, pens/pencils, and ruler. If you’ll need some nourishment during that time, bring it with you.
