2015 Edible Book Festival
All submissions will be eligible for the People’s Choice and Dean’s Choice awards. Each award will have a winner and a runner-up.
Celebrate National Library Week with us at the fifth annual Edible Book Festival, being held on Thursday April 16 from 4-6 PM in the Marvin Foyer (north entrance) of Booth Library. This free event features art pieces made out of food that reflect books or book themes. There are a number of categories for "best in show" awards, including Best Student Entry, Best Entry by a Family, Best Entry Based on a Children's Book, and Funniest Pun. Every edible book entry is eligible for the Dean's Choice Award, selected by Dean of Library Services Dr. Allen Lanham, and the People's Choice Award, determined by vote of all attending people. Come join us and vote for your favorite entries!
You can also take part in the festival by submitting an entry. Simply click on the "Register online" link below to fill out a simple online form. Participation is open to everyone (students, community members, staff, faculty) and is absolutely free, and you could win an award in one of the above mentioned categories. Your entry will automatically be entered for the Dean's Choice and People's Choice awards. Select one of the special categories (Student Entry, Family Entry, Children's Book, or Funniest Pun) if your piece qualifies. You can see entries from previous years if you click the "Pictures of winners" link below, which might give you some ideas for your entry.
Parking during the event is available in the parking lot on 4th Street, just south of Marty's bar, on the west side of the street. Edible book entries should be delivered to the Booth Library north entrance between 3:30 and 4:30 on April 16. Voting will commence at 4:30, with award winners announced between 5:30 and 6:00, depending on the number of people still voting. The Edible Book Festival gets bigger every year, and we look forward to seeing you on April 16th!
