Eat your books!

Every April 1 or thereabouts, there are Edible Book Teas around the country (and the world). I usually go to one held at Columbia College, but this year I was out of town visiting my sister in Cleveland. But never fear! Loganberry Books and Strong Bindery (located in the bookstore) sponsored an event on Saturday, April 4. So we went.

It was an interesting contrast to the Columbia event. There, the entries tend to focus on the structure of the book or punning on the titles. At Loganberry, most of them were very straight-forward interpretations of a book, although with some punning, too. This wasn't a bad thing, just different.

My personal favorite was Origami 101, with actual folded fondant critters!

Also, please note that, on this occasion, Moby Dick lost:
