Milligan hosts 10th annual Edible Books Festival virtually

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (April 3, 2020) — Milligan College’s Edible Books Festival will celebrate its 10th anniversary virtually this year from April 14-16 on the Milligan Libraries’ Facebook page. Each year, entries span from edible, creative concoctions based on book titles to depictions of famous literary characters.

“The Edible Books Festival is one of the most beloved traditions of Milligan’s library,” said Mary Jackson, research and instruction librarian at the college. “This year, our festival is a perfect way for our community to be creative and have fun at home as they transform everyday items into literary delights.”

The Milligan community is invited to submit a photo of their entry, as well as the name and title of the entry, by April 13 at 5 p.m. The public is invited to vote on the entries on April 14 and 15 on the Edible Book Festival Facebook Event. Entries will be judged by a panel for being the funniest or “punniest,” most creative, and overall favorite.

On April 16, the library staff will announce the winners and award prizes.

The International Edible Book Festival is held annually around the globe in April. More than 20 countries have participated in the event, which is often shared on the internet through websites and social media.
