Books Good Enough 2 Eat 2009

Books Good enough 2 eat 2 logoHere’s a great way to kick off your Friday evening... good food, good company, and a chance to eat your way through some spectacular edible works of literature and to support a great cause at the same time! Mark your calendars for April 3, 2009!


It’s Books2eat2, the second annual Library fundraiser for literacy in honour of International Edible Book Day.

Last year over 200 people ate their words and played with their food, enjoyed light refreshments, a cash bar and the music of the Fox Hunters Jazz Quintet. Auberge du Petit Prince won the coveted Edible Creation Crown for a spectacular recreation of its namesake, but all ten entries were a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach!

This year, join us from 6-8 pm, Friday, April 3, 2009 on the 3rd floor of the Central Library at 251 Dundas St. as food artists from around the city create edible books for you to see, sample and vote for!

Tickets are $25, available by calling 519-661-5122 or by visiting the Community Outreach and Programming Services office on the first floor of the Central Library.
