Edible Book Festival – Clemens Library 2011!!

All CSB/SJU students, faculty, staff and OSB are encouraged to enter the third Annual Clemens Library Edible Book Festival!

What is an Edible Book? Take a look at these past entries. Or take a look at entries from around the world!

Enter by noon April 1

Winning entries in the following three categories will be awarded $25 gift certificates at the bookstore:

- Most Looks Like a Book
- Most Inspired by a Book
- Judge's Favorite

Rules and Criteria for entries:
1. The majority of items used must be edible. Toothpicks or another item may be used to hold something together, but the majority of items must be edible. No glue, please.

2. The entry must be inspired by a book or books in some way. Whether it's the shape of a book, the title, theme or character of a book, it must be inspired in some way by literature or a book.

3. The edible foods used do not need to taste good together. The judges will not taste the entries. The judging is based on creativity and inventive ways of using food to create the edible books. However, bonus points may be given for entries that look delicious as well as being merely edible.

4. We will not be serving the edible books. If you choose to eat your own edible book afterwards, that is fine, but it will not be served by the library. After the winners are announced, all edible books will be on display. The library will provide refreshments, but the food provided will not be from the edible book entries.

All entries due in Clemens Library by noon on April 1, 2011; celebration of the entries at 3:00.

Submit entries to Sarah Gewirtz at Clemens Library. For questions or comments, email librarian Sarah Gewirtz sgewirtz@csbsju.edu or call her at x5802.
