Books Good Enough to Eat. Create an Edible Book for the International Edible Books Festival

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Stephanie 5For the 9th consecutive year, the University of Cincinnati Libraries will celebrate the International Edible Books Festival with an event scheduled for Thursday, April 1, 2010, from 12:30-1:30pm in the 5th floor lobby of Langsam Library. The Libraries are seeking people interested in creating an edible book for the viewing and consuming enjoyment of those in attendance at the event.

There are few restrictions for those interested in creating an edible book – namely that the creation be edible and have something to do with a book. Past entries have included such edible titles as The Secret Life of Bees, A Raisin in the Sun, The Very Hungry Catepillar, and The Oreo of Species among other literary greats.

As in previous years, entries will be judged according to such categories as “Most Edible,” “Most Hilarious,” “Most Creative,” “Most Deadly,” and “Most Literary.” An award for the “Best Student Entry” will be awarded with the winner receiving a $25 gift card to the UC Bookstore.

Those interested in creating an edible book should e-mail melissa.norris@uc.edu by Thursday, March 25, with the name of their entry.
