Take the Edible Book Challenge at Oshkosh Public Library

The library is currently accepting entries from individuals, families, school or community groups, book clubs - anyone who loves reading and has a flair for the creative can enter this contest that’s a quirky meeting of the literary and the culinary.

The concept is simple: make a representation of a book entirely out of edible ingredients. Contest entries can look like a book, be inspired by a book or even be a pun based on a book title. It could be something elaborate and artistic, such as a cake that looks like the cover of your favorite
Dr. Seuss book. Or it might be as simple and clever as a round loaf of bread with that classic tomato condiment for Ketchup in the Rye.

On Sat., May 19, a group of celebrity judges will choose winners in several categories:
Best Individual Entry
Best Family/Group Entry
Best Pun
People’s Choice (the public will vote during the event)

Entries will be displayed in the library’s lower level meeting room from noon to 4 p.m. during the May 19 event. The public can vote for the People’s Choice Award from noon to 3 p.m. Although they must be edible, entries are for display only and will not be served to the public. Winners will be awarded prizes.

Contest entry forms are due May 17 and are available at the library or at www.oshkoshpubliclibrary.org. For those who need a bit of inspiration, the OPL web site includes photos of 2011 contest entries. For more information visit the web site or call 236-5205.
