UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES HOSTING EDIBLE BOOK FESTIVAL

Posted

The Southern Miss Edible Book Festival will take place on Monday, April 15, at 2 p.m. in Cook Library on the Hattiesburg campus and the Gulf Coast Library on the Gulf Park campus. Any USM student, faculty, staff, alumni, or community member may participate.

An “edible book” is a creation made from edible materials that is inspired by a book title, character, or author. Since its beginning in 1999, libraries and cultural institutions around the world hold edible book festivals to celebrate the birthday of Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), the French author of a witty book on food entitled Physiologie du gout.
