  • Best Individual Entry (Tie!):  Adele Holoch, "Twelfth Night"
  • "Punniest" Entry:  Academic Affairs Office (Kellie Nadeau), "A Farewell to Arms"
  • People's Choice Award:  Cyndi Brandenburg and family, "Where the Sidewalk Ends"

If you missed it, check out our Facebook photos at http://on.fb.me/1gmf7IJ .    Co-sponsored by the Core Division and the Library, Champlain's Edible Books Festival is part of an international phenomenon described at http://www.books2eat.com/.  Based on this year's amazing participation, we suspect that it may become an annual campus event ! 

Thank you,
