2014 Edible Book Festival was a Resounding Success!

Creations by: Samantha Noeth Lewis ’19, Hannah Knowles ’15, and Katherine Sam ’16

Yesterday, Casti celebrated our inaugural Edible Book Festival. We played literary games, created blackout poetry, and had a cakewalk for fantastical book-themed cupcakes crafted by Jessa M. (‘18).

Without a doubt, however, the highlight of the afternoon was viewing the Edible Book Contest entries and voting for favorites. The more than eighty creations submitted made it difficult to chose, but in the end over 100 people cast ballots.

Congratulations to the five winning entries, selected by popular vote:
