In celebration of National Library Week 2016, Musselman Library held its third annual Edible Books Festival. Gettysburg College employees created book-inspired treats to share with the campus community. The award for "Best Taste" went to Amanda Richman's Love in the Time of Caramel", while Catherine Perry's The House of the Spirits won the "Punniest" award. "Best Look" and "Best in Show" meanwhile both went to Meredith Malburne-Wade's The Wonderful World of Oz.
In the 2015 festival, Justin Betts' Dragonlance Chronicles and Celia Hartz's The Tell Tale Heart tied for the "Best Taste" award. The "Punniest" award went to Mallory Jallas for Game of Scones. "Best in Show" went to Amy Dailey's A Confederacy of Dunces.
Entries for the first Edible Books Festival in 2014 ranged from children’s books (One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss) to classics (Catch-22 by Joseph Heller) to current bestsellers (The Fault in Our Stars by John Green). Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone won for "Most Appetizing," and Little Women won for "Most Creative."
