Edible Books Festival April 1st

Books2Eat 2009 crowd

The 2009 Books2Eat festival in the Library Atrium.

Books2Eat, an international festival that features works of edible art in the form of books, words, or inspirations from books, will take place at Denison at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 1, in the atrium of the William Howard Doane Library (400 West Loop). The community is invited to create and enter edible books. The festival is free and open to the public. For ideas on entries, see the event’s international website at http://www.books2eat.com/Books2eat/books2eat.html, or look at some previous entries here at Denison by visiting http://www.denison.edu/library/news/books_to_eat.html (click on a picture to see the gallery for that year).

Everyone is welcome to participate in creating an edible book or just to come and join in the festivities. The rules are simple. All entries must be completely edible and able to be out for an hour or two without refrigeration. If serving pieces are not disposable, the entrant is responsible for taking them away after the event. Anything left will be discarded. Entries will be accepted beginning at 2:00 p.m.

The entries will be judged in the following categories: Most Creative, based on best artistic endeavor or originality of thought;
Best Presentation, based on style and appearance; Most “Bookish,” based on best interpretation of a book title, or, best use of text, or, the entry looks most like a book; Most Sustainable, food content and container are environmentally friendly (please provide appropriate information to be considered in this category); and Best of Show, the overall favorite.
