Our sixth annual Edible Book Festival was a huge hit!

Thank you to all of the contestants, bidders and voters. We raised over $1000 for the DUL Memorial Fund in honor of Helene Baumann. Thank you to our sponsors, the Gothic Bookshop, the Sallie Bingham Center, and Duke University Libraries. Thanks, too, to Mark Zupan for taking pictures of all the entries.

Punniest: 100 Ears of Salad Dude (Judy Moore, her entry is pictured above)

Best Student Entry: Make Whey for Ducklings (Dana Powell)

Most Book-Like: Things Fall Apart (Winston Atkins)

P.S. If you haven’t taken our blog survey, please do. Last I checked, we were in the lead amongst all DUL blogs….but the attorneys are gaining on us. Vote now and vote often (just kidding…just vote).
