“Edible Book Event” [past event]


The W&L University Library is organizing its inaugural Edible Book Event, set to happen on Wednesday 1 April. (No fooling.)

You are invited to represent a favorite book through food.

  • Entries can be created out of anything edible — cake, grapes, pickles, whatever. (Of course, you can transport your item on something inedible — such as a plate. If you use any other inedible materials, please note that upon submission.)
  • All entries must be “bookish,” representing a book either thematically, through a character, via the depiction of the cover or the physical form, or any way you see fit. (Maybe you should avoid Silence of the Lambs. Or not.)
  • Entries may be submitted by members of the W&L community (faculty, staff, students, departments, student organizations), as individuals or as groups.

Entries must be dropped off at Leyburn Library’s Information Desk by 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday 1 April.
Judging of the entries will begin at 5:30 p.m on the Main Floor, but anyone can vote for their favorite entries with dollars from 2:00 to 5:00 pm, with all donations going to Campus Kitchens.
