‘Have your cake and read it, too’ with the annual Edible Book Festival! The festival, which is free and open to the public, will be held, Thursday, April 10. Stop in to Memorial Library, Room 116 between 11:00 AM until 4:30 PM in order to browse and vote for your favorites; there will be reception (with cake other than the entries!) from 4:00 – 5:30 PM.
As part of the fun, the Libraries encourage all aspiring “food artists”, (bakers and book enthusiasts) to participate by crafting their own edible books. An edible book is an entry made of edible materials, with the subject pertaining to books in shape or content. In the past, those participating have worked with cake, Jell-O, cheese, matzo, pretzels and more.
If you are interested in contributing an “edible book”, please complete and return the application form found on the festival page. The festival page also supplies information about the prize categories and festival sponsors and judges. The deadline for submitting this application form is Monday, April 7, 2014.
