What is an Edible Books Event?
This offbeat competition was started in 1999 by Judith A. Hoffberg and has since become an international event featured on radio, television, and newspapers. All works must be edible and have something to do with books: look like a book, include text to read, or illustrate a theme taken from a book or book title.
When is University Library's Edible Books Event?
University Library's Edible Books Event will take place on Tuesday of National Library Week, April 25 from 3pm-4pm in the 3rd floor atrium of the Conaton Learning Commons.
Participants will compete for $50 gift cards for each category. The categories are as follows:
- Best in Show: overall best presentation of food
- Most Creative Interpretation: overall best interpretation of a title or cover
- Best Student Entry: favorite entry from student submissions
How Can I participate?
Submit your entry here. Submit entries between March 1 and April 14 at 11:45pm. Please bring your edible entry AND a copy of the book to the Connection Center desk in the CLC by 2pm on the day of the event.
If you have any questions, please email Meg Martin, firstname.lastname@example.org.
