Description:

Please join us for our 15th Annual Edible Book Tea

What is an Edible Book?

It’s made of something you can eat, savory or sweet, and it looks like a book and/or makes reference to a book title, content, or binding structure. Past years have included, among many others, For Whom The Bell Tolls – a pile of tollhouse cookies (Marion Sachdeva); James and the Giant Peach – an exquisite cake topped with a peach shape (Carrie Savage with Sienna, Trent and Bryce Michaelson); Bread and Jam for Francis – jam and cream cheese sandwiches (Olivia Corica). Make a “book” or just come see the show and have tea! There’s lots of laughing and lots to eat!

NEGBW Print & Paper Exchange gallery

Thirteen members recently participated in our second annual snail mail print & paper exchange around the optional theme of Architecture. We encouraged participants to create their pieces using any type of technique and format. No size or material restrictions as long as the items could be sent through the mail. The prints created are wonderful and varied, in style, approach, and medium, and made for a really fun exchange. Keep en eye out for future exchanges and new themes!
