There will be a delectable selection on display in the RSL Lounge on Thursday 2 March for the Radcliffe Science Library’s 2nd Annual Edible Book Festival to mark World Book Day.
This event is free and open to any member of University – students, staff (including Bodleian Libraries staff) – and external readers. Everyone is invited to enter their book-themed culinary creations by bringing them to the RSL Lounge between 9am and 11am on Thursday 2 March.
What is an edible book?
Edible Books are art pieces composed of food that are ‘bookish’, i.e. based on and represent a book title, a book cover, a character, a plot element or theme, or any other attribute or characteristic directly associated with a book, including its form.
What will happen at the event?
All entries will be exhibited, documented, then eaten!
Here’s the plan for the day:
- 9-11am Drop off entries
- 11am-1pm Viewing and voting
- 1pm Awards and refreshments
Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories:
- Most Creative
- Most Fun
- Most Bookish
- People’s Choice
If you don’t have time to make your own edible entry, join us in admiring the delicious creations. Everyone who attends will be able to vote for their favorite – the entry with the most votes will be awarded the People’s Choice award.
At 1pm everyone will grab forks and we will “eat our own words”!
Take a look at last year’s entries (www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/science/edible-book-festival/) or simply Google ‘edible book festival’ and you will find dozens of wonderful examples.
Remember, you don’t need to be a good cook. If you’ve got a great idea for an entry, we want to see it!
