still time to eat books and have tea
- The Los Angeles Book Arts Center invites book artists and book lovers of ALL
AGES to cook up a literary feast for our annual Edible Book Tea Party on
Saturday, April 2, 2005.
There is NO FEE to create an edible book or to attend this fun-filled event,
which will be held on Saturday, April 2, at Plummer Park in West Hollywood.
Everyone who's interested - book artists, book lovers, foodies, children -
is invited to participate by cooking up a book out of ingredients that can be
found in any grocery store.
Our purpose is to celebrate books - there is no competition or judging, just
the joy of creating your own book and taking in the imagination of your
fellow book lovers. Last year, our youngest participant was 5 years old - a
testament to the inspiration that books have on our lives - and if she can do it,
so can you!
There's still plenty of time to join in the fun, and to help and inspire
participants, we'll be sending out weekly updates and tips on creating edible
TIP FOR WEEK 1
For example, to get those creative juices flowing - think about your
* Are they novels? Biographies? Romances? Mysteries?
* Or, are your very favorites the books you shared with your whole family?
* Which book had a significant impact on your life?
* Who is your favorite literary character?
In the coming weeks, we'll help you narrow your favorites to one particular
book, explore how to "cook your book" - how to pick the character, scene or
theme to illustrate in food, and look at the best food options for making an
edible book that looks and tastes great!
