Celebration of National Library Week took a tasty turn with the Edible Book Festival at the University of Southern Mississippi’s Cook Library this week. Librarians, students, and patrons turned out appetizing (well, mostly) takes on favorite books. With honor to the old saw that a picture is worth a thousand words, this blog will major on entry pictures of winners and one participant (me).
Winner of Most Creative was Claire Thompson’s “Moveable Feast or The Pun Also Rises.”
Winner of Best in Show was “The Walking Dead” by J J Crawley and Amanda Myers.
Winner of “Most Nutritious” was Rachel Calhoun’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
My entry, which comes as no surprise to anyone who knows me, was “The Snowy Day.”
My creation did not win a prize, but I think I can speak for all participants and observers that the event was great fun and demonstrated just how creative book people can be.
