Edible Book Festival Returning to SBCC

One of Santa Barbara City College’s most colorful and tasty events is returning to campus in April.

The fifth Edible Book Festival will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 1 at the SBCC Luria Library. The activity, which is free and open to the community, is part of the International Book Festival, a yearly event held on or near April 1 throughout the world and which unites book readers and food lovers from all cultures.

Interested SBCC faculty, staff and students are invited to use their imagination to create an “edible book.” They can pick a famous line, a favorite story or character, or a pun on a title. Or they can simply create something edible in the shape of a book.

Prize categories include: Best in Show, Most Delicious, Judge’s Choice, Most Humorous, Most Like a Book, Most Like One of the Great Books and Most Like the SBCC Reads 2014 Book — The Big Burn.

The exhibit viewing will be on display at the Luria Library from 2 to 4 p.m. Winners will be announced at 4 p.m. with eating commencing shortly afterward.

— Joan Galvan is a public information officer for SBCC.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
