Pequot Library Call for Entries: Edible Book Festival, Thru Jan. 31

Southport, CT - Set your ovens to Fahrenheit 451! Pequot Library is seeking submissions for its first Edible Book Festival!

Moby Duck? The Communist Antipasto? Anything is possible. Punsters, this is your time to shine.

What’s an edible book? Simply put, it’s anything made of food and inspired by a book. The Library seeks family-friendly creations that will be a feast for the eyes — the punnier, the better! Imagine The Lord of the Onion Rings, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nut Thing, Much Ado About Muffin, and Ivanhoagie. Your creation can be as simple or elaborate as you like.

Create an edible book: Register now through January 31. $8 registration fee. Submit your entry in one of two categories: individual or group. Winners will receive a $25 gift certificate from The Pantry in Fairfield.

Drop off: Bring your creation to Pequot Library on Friday, January 31 between 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Enjoy the Festival: On Saturday, February 1, see all the edible books on display, vote for your favorites to win, and celebrate Take Your Child to the Library Day.
