Biting into Books at UNC Library’s First Annual Edible Book Contest

UNC Library indulged its appetite for books by inviting the UNC and local communities to submit tasty creations in its first annual Edible Book Contest on April 11 at the Information and Library Science Library.

Participants made edible representations of books from the Information and Library Science Library’s collection. The creative entries included a confectionery castle, a faithful (and edible) recreation of a book cover, and the Elven lembas bread featured in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
