Last Wednesday, Santa Barbara City College participated in the 6th Edible Book Festival. The international event invites libraries, bookstores, and schools around the world to create a treat that pays homage to a book, quote, or author. The SBCC community made tasty and beautiful goodies representing literature, ranging from The True Story of the Three Little Pigs to Charles Bukowski. “The festival brings us all whimsy, laughs, creativity, and, of course, tasty food,” said library director Elizabeth Bowman (above). The edible creations were on display for an hour or so before the librarians cut into them to judge the taste. This year’s “people’s choice award” went to The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Lauren Peikert (below), while the “most punny” award went to Seabiscuit by Beth Ruiz.
