Edible Book Festival is this Saturday

Life of Pie
Creation by Herb Bryce

Part literary, part culinary, part artistic, and all edible, the Edible Book Festival is sure to tickle your taste buds and your funny bone! This edible art exhibition will feature “books,” made of food and inspired by a book or pun on a book title, that are exhibited, documented, and then devoured.

The event will be held at Third Place Commons in the Lake Forest Park Town Center on Saturday, April 7 at 11am, and is free and open to the public.

Come out and enjoy the mouthwatering manuscripts, or brave your apron to create your own succulent storybook.

Your creation should be inspired by a book, but made out of edible ingredients—sweet or savory. It may look like a book, tablet, or scroll... or be completely unique. Register your delectable literary creation in person at 10:45am on the day of the event (Saturday, April 7).

This is an all ages event and books will be judged in the following categories:

• Most PUNderful
• Most Book-like
• Most Visually Appealing
• Judges Choice Award
• People’s Choice Award

Entries will be judged in two age brackets: Adult and K-12.
