Eat Your Words at Second Annual Edible Books Festival

12:00 pm

The University of Miami Libraries’ Special Collections division will host its second annual Edible Books Festival on Friday, April 1 from 12 to 2 p.m. in the Richter Library lobby.

Participants create edible book art, which can look like a book, reference a character or scene, or represent a pun on a book title (War and Pizza, for example). The rules for participating in the contest are simple: Your entry should relate to books and reading, and it has to be edible (sweet or savory, raw or cooked…it’s all good). You can take inspiration from a poem, a beloved piece of cover art, manga, a famous author, or a scroll. Just use your imagination and your culinary skills.

Participants must register by March 25. To register, send an e-mail to [email protected]. Include your name or team name with list of members, title of entry, and title of book inspiring your entry (if applicable).

Prizes will be awarded for “Wittiest Pun,” “Most Book-Like,” and “Best in Show.” Entries will be displayed in the Richter Library lobby and photographed. At approximately 2 p.m., participants and viewers will grab forks, spoons, and knives and “eat their words.”
