The Edible Book Festival is back and FREE for all ages

Monday, February 24, 2014

Readers: Start your ovens! As part of the International Edible Book Festival the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council will be hosting a local Edible Book Festival at Third Place Commons located within the Town Center at Lake Forest Park.

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.

This March 29 event will be held from 11am – 3pm, and is free and open to the public. Come out and enjoy these mouthwatering manuscripts, or brave your aprons to create your own succulent storybook. Get inspired at the Books2Eat webpage. Your creation should be inspired by a book, but made out of edible ingredients. It may look like a book, tablet or scroll, or be completely unique. Entries may be sweet or savory.
