Edible Book Contest and Festival

March 23rd, 2011

Sink your teeth into a good book–an edible book, that is, with UW-Madison’s 4th Annual Edible Book Festival! The festival, which is free and open to the public, will be held, Tuesday, April 12 from 4:00-6:30 PM (Memorial Library, Room 460).

As part of the fun, the libraries encourage all aspiring food artists, (bakers and book enthusiasts) to participate by crafting their own edible books. An edible book is an entry made of edible materials, with the subject pertaining to books in shape or content. In the past, those participating have worked with cake, Jell-o, cheese, matzo and more. In addition to the Judges’ Choice and People’s Choice awards, prizes will be awarded in the following categories: best entry by a family, a group, a student, and an individual.

If you are interested in contributing an “edible book”, please fill out and return the application form found on the festival page.

The deadline for submitting an application form is Monday, March 28; submit the form by email or mail to Kristina Glodoski.
