4th Annual Edible Books Festival : April 1st, 2013

We are excited to announce the 4th annual Edible Books Festival at the University of Miami Libraries. This year’s festival takes place on April 1, 2013, in the front lobby of the Otto G. Richter Library at 12:00PM.

This celebrated event was initiated by book artist Judith A. Hoffberg in 1999, and quickly became an international sensation. The rules for participating in the contest are simple: your entry should relate to books and reading, and it has to be edible (sweet or savory, raw or cooked…it’s all good!). You can take inspiration from a poem, a beloved piece of cover art, manga, a famous author, a scroll…just use your imagination and your culinary skills!

We are inviting all interested UM students, faculty and staff to participate in this event. You can enter as an individual, or as a team. Please send your entries to um.ediblebooks@gmail.com by March 26, 2013. For more information, including rules and set up information, please visit our website at library.miami.edu/ediblebooks. Prizes will be awarded for “Wittiest Pun”, “Most Edible”, and “Best in Show.” All of us on the Edible Books Festival Team are looking forward to seeing (and eating!) your entries. Good luck!
