The International Edible Book Festival is a yearly event held on April 1 throughout the world. This event is a celebration of art, food, libraries, and community. UNT students, faculty, and staff create edible books that are exhibited and then consumed.
All entries must be "bookish" through the integration of text, literary inspiration or, quite simply, the form and they must be completely edible. To view examples of past entries, see Edible Books Festival.
Prize categories include best tasting, best use of chocolate, best adult fiction book, best adult non-fiction book, best children's book, most unusual use of food, and best non-cake book. Entries will be judged on originality and creativity, skill and construction, visual appeal, and adherence to the book theme.
There is no fee to enter or attend. Advance registration for entrants is encouraged, but not required. For more details or to register, contact Kristin Boyett.
