Edible Book Fest Winners and Photos

Release date: April 05, 2010

Goucher's First Annual Edible Book Fest was held on April 1st, 2010 in the library. Each entry was required to follow two rules: 1) It had to be made out of something edible; 2) It had to reference books in some way either through the title, characters, book cover, etc.

Viewers voted for their favorites in four categories: Most Literary, Most Culinary, Funniest, and Best in Show. Then everyone ate up the entries! See winners and all entries below:

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
