The Friends of the UW -Madison Libraries issued this announcement:
Here is some information about an interesting and fun event coming up in the next few weeks!The 2014 Edible Book Festival takes place 11:00 am – 5:30 pm on Thursday, April 10, 2014, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Memorial Library and promises to combine literary and culinary talents from the Madison area.
The event is free and open to the public in a new location this year, Memorial Library Room 116. Members of the community are encouraged to attend, ogle the edible art, and vote throughout the day (up until 4:30 pm) for their favorite entries. A reception from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm will include a “real” cake, so that attendees won’t be tempted to taste the entries! All entries will automatically be entered into the festival’s friendly competition for “best in category” and prizes will be awarded by the official judges:
We especially encourage people to enter one of their own creations–you don’t have to be a food artist to enter! The deadline for entering the event is April 7, 2014. For more information, online entry form, and photos from past festivals, see the website:
Join us for this community engaging event and support the promotion of creativity and reading through libraries.
