Edible book contest planned

March 10, 2009

Do you enjoy turning food into works of art? If so, Washington County Free Library has a contest planned to celebrate National Library Week.

Put your culinary skills to work and create a literary inspired work of edible art.

All "edible" books must be "bookish" through the integration of text, literary inspiration or, simply by form.

Stop in any branch of the library to pick up an entry form. Participants are invited to bring their creation to the Central Library at 100 S. Potomac St., Hagerstown, Wednesday, April 1, between 5 and 7 pm. where a photograph of their edible work of art will be taken.

A poster of entry photos will be posted in each branch of the library system. The public is invited to visit any branch of the library and vote for their favorite creation between April 13 and 16 (entries will be identified by number only on the poster). First-, second-, and third-prize winners will be announced and notified Friday, April 17.

Though 'books' may not be eaten, all parts should be edible. All entries must include name, address and phone number as well as a complete list of ingredients. All entries submitted must be approved for inclusion by library staff. Only one entry per person will be accepted.
