Know of a good book to eat?! Create an Edible Book for UC Libraries International Edible Books Festival!

It's time once again for the fan favorite International Edible Books Festival scheduled for 1-2 p.m., Tues, April 4, in Langsam Library's 5th floor lobby. UC Libraries is seeking people interested in creating an edible book for the enjoyment (and consumption) of all in attendance. There are few restrictions - namely that your creation be edible and have something to do with a book - so you may let your creativity run wild.

As in previous years, entries will be judged according to such categories as "Most Delicious," "Most Creative," "Most Checked Out" and "Most Literary." Special prizes will be awarded for the "Best Student" entry and “Best Overall” entry.

If you are interested in creating an edible book, e-mail melissa.norris@uc.edu by Tuesday, March 28 with your name and the title of your creation.
