Read It and Eat It!

4:30-6:30 p.m.

Be a part of our 1st Annual Edible Book Festival and meet our new library director, Dawn Jenkin.

Edible books can look like a book in form and shape, be inspired by a book or author, can be a pun of a book title, can refer to a book character, reproduce a book cover, or just have something to do with books in general. Entries may be made from anything that is edible (cake, bread, crackers, Jell-o, fruit, vegetables, candy, etc.) as long as it can sit out for an hour or two without melting, turning bad, or getting scary. 

There are two rules: entries must be edible and they must somehow relate to a book. They will be judged for these prize categories: People's Choice, Funniest/Punniest, Best Savory Entry, and Best Sweet Entry.

Whether you’re a professional chef or just a bibliophile who likes to play with your food, the festival is open to anyone in the community.

3:30-4:30 p.m. – Participants drop off edible entries in Ordway Auditorium
4:30-5:00 p.m. – Judging, photography, and public viewing/voting
5-6:30 p.m. - Judges welcome, awards, and eating of books

Registration is not required to participate, but it helps the organizers plan the event. The registration form may be found here:
