Edible Book Festival 

Sponsored by Mason Libraries, the Edible Book Festival features creative food projects inspired by books or stories. Physically resembling books or referring to an aspect of a story, entries include both the real book and the edible version. Evaluated by a panel of judges as well as by public voting, winners are selected in various prize categories, such as “Punniest” or “Best in Show.”  The entries then are eaten as we celebrate the book arts through food and fun.
