"Edible Book" Event Moves Online!
Looking for a fun project that is inspired by your favorite books? Our annual Edible Books Contest (postponed from May due to Covid-19) has been adapted to be an Exhibit of photos on Facebook.
How it works: create something made out of food that represents a book character, title, or something in the book. Send us two photos of your creation: one with the creator (you) pictured near the edible book item, and one of just the item (with or without a copy of the book it is from).
There will be no formal voting this year, just something for all to enjoy. All participants will receive a small prize, and the photos will be added to an album on our Facebook page for all to enjoy. Deadline: Sunday October 18.
Want to see samples of an edible book? See past entries in our Facebook albums, or do an Internet search!
