Tusculum to participate in Edible Book Festival on April 15

Posted on 21 March 2013 by srichey@tusculum.edu

The Thomas J. Garland Library’s 1st annual Edible Books Festival is coming to Tusculum College on Monday, April 15. The Edible Books Festival is celebrated all across the country.  The original edible books festival began “as an international celebration of the ingestion of culture and a way to concretely share a book.” according to the festival website.

Tusculum students, faculty, staff and their immediate family members are invited to enter the festival which requires them to create an edible representation of a book or literary character.  All entries must be made entirely of edible materials.
Entries will be judged in the following categories:

Most Book-like
Most Creative
Overall Favorite

Entries with the most votes in the first three categories will receive a $10 gift card and the overall favorite will win a $15 gift card.

A variety of ideas can be found with an “edible book festival” internet search.  You may drop off entries in the library from 8-10 a.m. on April 15.  Entries will be on display for college community voting from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.  The winners will be announces and entries will  be eaten on Tuesday, April 16, starting at 11:45 a.m.
