2nd Annual Edible Book Festival at Becker Library

We're pleased to announce that Becker Medical Library's second annual Edible Book Festival will take place on Monday, April 9! Anyone in the medical center community is welcome to participate.

What's an edible book, you ask? Edible books are silly or serious creations made of food and inspired by books, titles, characters or authors. Check out photos of last year's entries, and here's some more inspiration from other Edible Book Festivals around the world. 

You can source books, titles, characters or authors from any genre you like. Since we are a medical library, we will have an award category for “Most Edible Medical Book."


  • Drop off entries in the library atrium by 10:00 a.m.
  • Vote from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Awards and eating* at 2:30 p.m.

*Note we will be eating these, so they must be edible (or mostly edible, as long as what’s not is obvious) without refrigeration.

Prizes will be awarded for:

  • Most Likely to be Eaten
  • Most Creative "Book"
  • Most Edible Medical "Book"

Looking forward to seeing all the creative entries!

* Please note: Becker Briefs pages may contain links, email addresses or information about resources which are no longer current.
