A novel event: Edible Books Festival

Published April 04. 2013 4:00AM

When you hear about the Edible Books Festival, it's easy to start riffing on potential titles: "The Grapes of Wrath." "Chicken Soup for the Soul." "Green Eggs and Ham."

But here's the real deal: This annual event, held by the three Friends of Libraries in Groton, boasts culinary items inspired by books. They might look like a novel or take a cue from a tome's title or play off a lead character.

Visitors guess the title and then, later on, get to sample the items.

This seventh annual event is held by the three Friends of Libraries in Groton.


Edible Books Festival, doors open at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Groton Public Library, 52 Newtown Road, Groton; free; (860) 441-6750.
