The Mark O. Hatfield Library invites you to participate in the third annual
EDIBLE BOOK FESTIVAL!
Friday, March 14, 2014. Hatfield Room.
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.
Some of last year’s entries are show below. For additional inspiration and ideas, check out these Edible Book Festival entries from Seattle Public Library, UCLA, and Duke University. Your entry doesn’t need to be baked or cooked, but it does need to be made of something edible!
Free to enter– no registration required. Drop off your entry in the Hatfield Room on March 14 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 until 4:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided!
All entries will be on display from 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Even if you don’t enter, you can cast a vote for your favorite edible book. At 4:30 p.m., our esteemed panel of judges—David Craig (Biology), Ford Schmidt (Hatfield Library), and a CLA student (tbd) —will announce the prizes for:
- Best Student Entry
- Most Literary
- Most Creative
- People’s Choice
Bistro gift cards will be given to this year’s winners. For more information and to view all photos of the last two year’s entries, go to:
