Edible Book Contest 2020

(Images above are from the 2019 contest.)

Saturday, October 24. All day event!

Use your amazing culinary skills to recreate a favorite book (fiction or non-fiction) with food in the library’s 3rd annual Edible Book Contest. Edible books can look like a book, be inspired by a book or author, be a pun, refer to a character, or reproduce the book cover. But don’t let the details hold you back–let your imagination run wild! Your interpretation is what we want to see! FAMILY FUN!!
