Let Them Eat Cake!

Feeling creative? Love literature? Register today for the library's 2nd Annual Edible Book Festival! Edible Book Festivals are held across the globe on April 1st in honor of French gourmet, Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin's birthday. Contestants bake, cook, or creatively arrange food to look like books, characters, or puns on titles.

So, if you fancy yourself a creative baker (or at least willing to give it a try!) register your literary inspired creation by Monday, March 30th*! On the day of the event, drop off is from 11 AM - 1 PM in the library. Viewing and voting begins at 1 PM, winners are announced at 1:30 PM, and then bystanders and participants get to eat the entries!

Need a little inspiration? Take a look at the Edible Book Festival guide for pictures, guidelines, registration forms, and contact information if you have questions.

Not interested in entering the competition but you are interested in eating cake? That's fine by us! Just drop by from 1 PM - 3 PM to vote on and sample your favorite entries.

Wondering how stiff delicious the competition will be? Here are a few of our favorite entries from last year.

* Original registration date was 3/25.
