*UPDATE* It's become clear that we'd set our goal too high. We are moving the Food Book Fair to a more manageable location that we do not have to build out. Our original space was 40,000 square feet, (HUGE) hence the large Kickstarter goal. We lost a funder and we were set on this location, however, we've found a better option. Please visit: www.foodbookfair.com, add your name to the list and we'll alert you when tickets go on sale. Thanks! Elizabeth (email@example.com)
