Edible Book Contest- Banned Books Week
Egan Library sponsored an Edible Books Contest on Sept 30th.
Many votes were cast on the very creative entries which included interpretations on banned or frequently challenged titles such as Catcher in the Rye and Daddy’s Roommate. Winning selections included the People’s Choice Award for Monster Book of Monsters by Elise Tomlinson, Juried Award for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Tracy Leithauser and an Honorable Mention to In the Night Kitchen by Michael Ciri. This event was held in correlation with Banned Books Week, held the last week of September annually. Banned Books Week is sponsored by the American Library Association and promotes the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. The week draws attention to books that have faced attempts at censorship in communities and schools across the country.
Special Thanks to judges Nina Chordas, Pedar Dalthorp, and Sara Hagen.
