Food Book Fair

Foodieodicals is a one-of-a-kind, only-at-Food-Book-Fair, signature independent-magazine-festival-within-the-fair! "Foodieodicals" is food + periodicals; it's one of Eater.com's Banned Words of 2014 ("[L]et's not make this a thing," Raphael Brion, September 5, 2014); it's really, truly, far-and-away the overall Food Book Fair fan favorite. 
Now it's twice as good with two days of shopping, swapping and snacking with magazine makers and their wares from around the world, down in Liberty Hall — plus installations and activities taking over the Ace Lobby. Special playlists by Snacky Tunes!
