Animal Farm (“Animal Parm”), Gone Girl (“Prawn Girl”) and The Goldfinch (“The Goldfish”) were among the books that served as inspiration for the entries in the 10th Annual Edible Books Festival held in Myrin Library.
Students, faculty and staff cooked up a total of 25 entries this year. Angela Upright 2017 and Dayna Honrychs 2017 won the first-place prize of $200 in the Group category for their cake entry, “Mime and Punishment,” a variation on Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment. Metadata Librarian Andy Prock had his third consecutive first-place win in the Individual category for “Orange Is the New Snack.” Prock won second place as well with “House of Chard.”
Other entries included Strawberry Road (“A Date on Strawberry Road”), Little House on the Prairie (“Little Sprouts on the Dairy”), and A Confederacy of Dunces (“A Confederacy of Lunches”).
Copies of Blue Is the Warmest Color, The Goldfinch, Gone Girl, House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black, Still Life with Bread Crumbs, and the movie Frozen—all of which were the basis for entries—were distributed to seven raffle winners.
