The Edible Book Festival is here! Once again, there will be butterbeer!

Edible book festival examples 2014

On Monday, March 30, the library will celebrate its 2nd annual Edible Book Festival. Everyone in the Casti community is welcome to join us from 3:30-6:00 for literarily-inspired games and food. Everyone who comes can vote in our Edible Book competition! All members of the community are also invited to donate non-perishable foods to the We Won’t Stop club’s Edible Books Middle School Food Drive.

Community members are invited to create entries for the competition. The rules are simply that all creations must be made out of edible components and must either illustrate a concept from a book or be food that appears in a book. Families or groups of students are welcome to collaborate on entries. They may be dropped off in the morning or just before school ends for the day. Please label all entries with creators’ first and last names, and bring in the book that inspired your creation, or a printout of the cover. Check out these examples from last year.

All attendees will get to vote to award prizes to their favorite entries…and then eat the creations!

This year’s prize categories are:

  • Most original
  • Best food eaten in a book
  • Healthiest
  • Funniest/punniest
  • Technical mastery
  • Best simple idea
  • People’s choice

Whether you create an edible book, want to play literary games, do word-inspired art, or admire the creative work of our community (and groan over bad puns), we look forward to seeing you there!
