Celebrate books good enough to eat at the International Edible Books Festival April 3rd
2022’s Best Overall – Rebecca Tabaja’s “Fairy the Farting Unicorn”
Once again, the University of Cincinnati Libraries will celebrate the International Edible Books Festival with an event scheduled for Monday, April 3rd from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on the 4th floor of the Walter C. Langsam Library.
At the event, nearly 20 participants will present edible creations that represent a book in some form. There are few restrictions in creating an edible book – namely that the creation be edible and have something to do with a book.
Submitted entries include intriguing titles such as “Hello, Lighthouse” and “Blue Water.” Animal-themed books are popular this year with “Bone Dog from Nettle and Bone”, “The Nest”, “Grey Bees”, and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” Thrillers such as “Frankenstein” and “1984” will intrigue attendees, while numerous children’s books will make people smile with such titles as “Winnie The Pooh”, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “The Day the Crayons Quit.”
2022’s Best Student Entry – Milly Diaz Perez’s “To the Boy Who Lived”
As in past years, entries will be judged according to such categories as Most Literary, Most Delicious, Most Adorable and Most Gruesome. In addition, the Top Student Entry and Best Overall Entry will receive UC swag. After the entries are judged they will be consumed and enjoyed by all in attendance.
