Edible Book Contest

8246872325_a982f05fcdThis weekend I’m a guest judge at the Cherrydale Library’s Edible Book Contest. I know, right? It’s like the perfect marriage between a novelist and a food critic. Here are all the details:

What is an edible book?

  • It’s any representation of a book title that is made primarily from edible materials.
  • It can look like a book, refer to a character, be a pun on a title etc.
  • It can be as fancy as a decorated cake or as simple as a bowl of grapes (The grapes of wrath?)
  • Check out some of last year’s entries.8247943602_24ea592286
