Edible Book Festival

Monday, 09 April, 2018 @ 04:00 PM - 05:30 PM | Cost:free

Booth Library will sponsor its eighth annual Edible Book Festival on April 9 as part of National Library Week.

Anyone in the community may enter a work made out of edible materials that has something to do with books in either its shape or content. The artwork will not be eaten. To view entries from last year’s competition, go to http://thekeep.eiu.edu/ediblebook_2017/.

Participants may design an entry on any topic; however, this year’s contest will have a special “Theme Challenge”! This year’s theme is: PEEPS. (Please note that the theme challenge is intended as a starting point to inspire ideas and creativity; participation is optional.)

Entries may be installed at the library after 3 p.m. April 9. Public voting will take place from 4 to 5 p.m., with the winners announced shortly after. The event is free and open to the public.

Gift cards will be awarded to the winners of People’s Choice and Judges Choice. Honorable mention prizes also will be awarded.

There is no fee to participate in or view this show; however, those planning to enter the contest must pre-register by April 6. The entry form is available on the library website, http://www.library.eiu.edu/exhibits/edible-book/. For more information on the contest, call 581-8456.
