Edible Book Festival, March 15, 2013

YOU ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE
SECOND ANNUAL EDIBLE BOOK FESTIVAL!!!!

Friday, March 15, 2013

Hatfield Room
Mark O. Hatfield Library

In conjunction with the International Edible Book Festival, we are pleased to sponsor this fun and creative event again this year. Use your artistic talents or your punny side to make an edible creation inspired by a literary title, author, or character. Pick your favorite mystery, poem, or character from a children’s book—the only limit is your imagination.

 

Last year’s entries are show below. For additional inspiration and ideas, check out these Edible Book Festival entries from Seattle, University of Puget Sound, and Duke University. Your entry doesn’t need to be baked or cooked, but it does need to be made of something edible!

Drop off your entries in the Hatfield Room on March 15 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. If you have a copy of the book that inspired your creation, bring it along and we will include it in the display. Come in to cast a vote for your favorite edible book– all entries will be on view until 4:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided!

At 4:30 p.m., our esteemed panel of judges—Mike Chasar (English), Hannah Elder (CLA ’13), Honey Wilson (President’s Office)—will announce the prizes for:

  • Best Student Entry
  • Most Literary
  • Most Creative
  • Punniest
  • People’s Choice

Bistro gift cards will be given to this year’s winners.
