Edible Book Competition

It’s Wednesday afternoon and a group of library staff members have gathered for an important vote. Carefully examining the entries, they mark down votes on a ballot which includes categories from “wittiest/punniest” and “most resembles a book,” to “most inedible.” This is Lamont Library’s first edible book contest since 2009 (though I will come to see that both the “book” and “edible” requirements are really more like loose guidelines), a celebration of the scholarly and scrumptious. Lamont’s contest is an incarnation of the Edible Book Festival, an annual competition for “bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers around the world,” according to the website.
