“Cat In The Hat & Much More” by Angela and Emily Bryant. Winner of the 2013 Best In Show Award.

Start cooking the books! The 9th Annual Edible Book Festival will take place on April 1st from 2-3:30pm in Perkins Library room 217. Note the room change this year.

As in years past we will have a silent auction of the entries. Competitive bidding is highly encouraged. Proceeds will support the Duke University Libraries Helene Baumann Fund.

Attendees will be asked to electronically vote for your favorite entries in the following categories:

  • Most Edible
  • Least Edible
  • Best book structure (looks or acts most like a real book)
  • Best student entry (k-12, college and grad students)
  • Punniest
  • Best In Show

The auction and voting will take place between 2-3pm, with winners announced shortly thereafter. Please bring your entries to Perkins 217 at 1:30pm.  We need time to enter them into the electronic voting database.
