Third Place Commons, 17171 Bothell Way NE,

As part of the International Edible Book Festival bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers will unite to create edible books that are exhibited, documented and then consumed. Edible books are made of food and inspired by a book or pun on a book title.
For more information or to register your entry (there's still time!) email.
Bite a Book today! Be inspired!
Literary lovers and culinary aficionados unite!
It is not too late to bake a book for the Shoreline – Lake Forest Park Edible Book Festival, sponsored by the SL-LFP Arts Council, to be held on Saturday, March 30th at Third Place Commons beginning at 11:00a,! This is an all ages event with prizes (from our friends at Third Place Books!) to be given to K-6th grade, 7-12th grade or adult. Here are the prize categories:
- Most Good Enough to Eat
- Most PUNderful
- Most 3D/Architectural
- Most Literal Depiction of the Book Title
Every one present will have one vote for their favorite – The People’s Choice Award.
|"Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain"|
Just create a representation of a book, character, scene or pun on a book title out of edible ingredients. This does not have to be baked and could be assembled with ready-made ingredients if you wish.
To pre-register (makes the check-in process easier) email the title of your Edible Book along with your appropriate age group by Friday at 6:00pm, or just show up at 11:00 with your edible creation, a copy of the book that inspired your entry and an appropriate serving utensil. Please, no unattended children.
We will supply everything else. We have just learned that the King County Library System Social Media team will broadcast the festival and film people interested in sharing their entry. The event will be live-streaming on Google+ and will be archived on the KCLS YouTube channel. You will not want to miss the opportunity to share your edible creation with the world!
