Printer's Pie

Pie Sale Fundraiser with Upper Crust Pies benefitting
the Jaffe Center for Book Arts Education Fund



Order Deadline: Friday October 3


JCBA's $20 Pie Sale Fundraiser is now a semi-annual event!

Because we love books and we love pie... and because an Upper Crust pie is so much better than printer's pie.*


ORDER DEADLINE: Friday October 3

PIE PICK UP DAY: Friday October 10 (noon to 6 PM) at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, inside FAU's Wimberly Library.


Our Pi Day Fundraiser each March 14 is a huge book arts hit, but it's a long wait until March. Autumn is the season for pumpkin pie and apple pie and pecan pie and coconut custard pie.... So put on the coffee and order pies through our new Autumnal Pie Sale event. We help you celebrate the season and you help us build a better Jaffe Center for Book Arts.


We're teaming up once again with the world famous Upper Crust Pie Company of Lake Worth, Florida, for this Autumnal Pie Sale Fundraiser and it's simple as pie to take part. Honest. Here's how it works:


1. Order a pie from us. Or order a whole bunch of pies.

2. Pay us 20 bucks for each pie. (Pay more if you are feeling particularly generous. Your pie purchases and extra donations all support the JCBA Education Fund.) 3. Pick up your Upper Crust pies from us on Friday October 10 between noon and 6 PM here at JCBA at FAU's Wimberly Library.

These are no rinky-dink grocery store pies, by the way. Upper Crust pies are 9 inch deep dish with the flakiest crusts you will ever taste. Fillings are never canned; Rudy the Baker uses only fresh frozen fruit in his fruit pies. The Upper Crust has been family owned and operated in Lake Worth since 1978 when Raul Quintero moved his family from Pompano Beach to Lake Worth, Florida, with a dream for a future. He bought an old cake shop located on Dixie Highway and there it all began. After many years of hard work and determination Raul passed the reins over to his son, Rudy, who has been baking pies using Raul's recipes and the best ingredients for about 30 years now.


The Upper Crust has become a bit of a Palm Beach County icon, too. Their Key Lime Pie was voted the Best in Palm Beach County by the readers of the Palm Beach Post, and they were also voted winner for best pies in the “Best of Boca & Beyond 2008” edition of Boca Raton magazine, as well as being featured in many other news articles in rags like the Wall Street Journal, The Palm Beach Post, and Sun Sentinel. The Upper Crust has also gotten quite a few mentions over the years in Convivio Bookworks' "Dispatches from Lake Worth" written by JCBA Director John Cutrone.



 *What is printer's pie, you ask? Printer's pie is a big mess and a big headache: It's when a printer or his printer's devil accidentally spills a tray of type. We much prefer Upper Crust pie.
