On Monday April 15th 2013, Booth Library hosted its third annual Edible Book Festival. There were 33 entries, including pieces from library staff, students, faculty, retirees, and members of the Charleston community. The entries ranged from literal interpretations of books to puns on book titles.
Festival attendees could vote for their favorite exhibit and due to the high quality of the pieces nearly every entry received votes. The award winners were:
Dean's Choice Gold Medal - "Miss Havisham's Wedding Cake" by Ellen Corrigan
Dean's Choice Silver Medal - "Mrs. Dilloway" by Bob Hillman and Marlene Slough
People's Choice Gold Medal (Most Votes) - "A Dog's Life" by Ann Brownson
