For the eighth year, duPont Library will celebrate the International Edible Books Festival with a contest scheduled for Monday, April 1. Entries for the contest will be accepted from 8 a.m. until noon and the celebration will take place from 3:30-5 p.m. in the main lobby of the library.

Each entry should be edible—cakes, vegetables, fruits, bread, etc.—and represent a book or something about a book. Past entries have included The Princess and the Pea, The Hunger Games, A Farewell to Arms, and The Hungry Caterpillar, among other literary greats.

Contest categories include: Children’s Books, Banned Books, Wittiest (title puns), Entries by Children 12 and Younger, and a General Category. Prizes include gift cards from local businesses. New this year will be a “People’s Choice Award”—everyone who attends the celebration will have the chance to vote for their favorite entry.
