Edible Book Festival

The Georgetown University Library and the Booth Family Center for Special Collections invite you to create books made of edible materials for everyone to enjoy. We have one rule only: Make edible art that has something to do with books as shapes or content. Over the years, “edible books” have been made from cake, breadsticks, chocolate, veggies, and matzo meal. Every entry provides some artsy good fun with a dash of creativity.

There is no fee to enter or attend. Advance registration for entrants is required. Please click here to register by March 23. 

Entries will be judged on originality and creativity, skill and construction, visual appeal, and adherence to the book theme. For examples see https://www.flickr.com/photos/dukeunivlibraries/sets/72157643403855874/

Members of the community are encouraged to attend, ogle the edible art, and vote for their favorite entries. This is a family-friendly event! A cake for attendees will be provided and served so no one is tempted to taste the entries. Certificates and prizes will be awarded in multiple categories by the official judges.
