Readers, start your ovens.
Join us on April 1st, at Third Place Commons in Lake Forest Park Town Center, intersection of Bothell and Ballinger Way.
Create an “Edible Book” inspired by a book, but constructed of edible ingredients. Entries can be savory or sweet, just make sure they tickle the taste buds (and maybe the funny bone!)
|The crowd munches on the entries|
The Edible Books are displayed (along with the book that inspired them), photographed, judged, and then EATEN (with coffee and punch) by the participants and on-lookers. Prizes are donated by Third Place Books.
It’s free to participate and you’ll be eligible to win fabulous prizes from Third Place Books. K-12 grade participants are particularly welcome.
This is a free, all ages event and books will be judged in the following categories:
- Most PUNderful
- Looks like and/or functions like a real book
- Most delectably appetizing
- Special judges award
- People’s choice award
|Ernest Hemmingway's The Old Man and the Sea|
Please bring a copy of the book that inspired your entry and a serving utensil.
Register your Edible Book Creations by Thursday, March 30 so we can plan the space to display all of your creations and make check-in easier.
Running late? Show up with your creation between 10:45 and 11:00am on April 1st.
