Eat a Book on April 1 (Not a Joke!)

Eat a Book on April 1 (Not a Joke!)

Hi, this is Matt again.

Do you like to eat?  Boy, I do.  Plus I also like to read.  If only there was a way to combine those joys!

And yet, like a miracle, there is a way!  On April 1st (I swear this is not an April Fools’ joke) the library will hold our second annual Edible Books contest.  Joining libraries all over the world, you can create a delectable treat inspired by your favorite book.  The best entries will get prizes – including a new prize this year!  Enter on behalf of a department or student organization and you could win a whole basket full of books!


Then comes the best part; eating.  All those edible books get to serve the purpose they were made for.  So join us at noon on April 1st in the Hayes Hall atrium!  The event is free of charge and everyone is welcome to attend (even if you can’t cook). For more information, contact Julianne Stout at extension 204 or

If you need a little inspiration, an international gallery of past entries is available online here.
