5th Annual Edible Book Event April 21
The Hernando County Public Library System invites the public to the 5th Annual Edible Book Event on Saturday, April 21 from 2:30 to 4 p.m. at the Spring Hill Branch Library, located at 9220 Spring Hill Drive. This celebration of books is a fun event for all ages.
There are two ways to participate
- Register as a participant by April 16 – Use your imagination to create an edible book or an edible work of art based on a book, author, or anything else book-related. Edible books may look like a book in form and shape, be inspired by a book or author, be a pun of a book title, refer to a book character, reproduce a book cover, or just have something to do with books in general. Entries may be made from anything edible as long as it can sit out without melting or turning bad. All entries should be family friendly. Space is limited, so please register online or with library staff by Monday, April 16. Limit one entry per person. All participants should set up at 2 p.m. and bring utensils to serve.
- Attend as a spectator – Walk around the edible book exhibition, enjoy the detailed creations, sample the many edible foods and cast a “People’s Choice” vote.
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hernando County and gift certificates to their Little Red Schoolhouse Bookstore will be awarded to registered participants. Group entries will receive one per group. For more information, or to register, visit http://hernandocountylibrary.us/ or call (352) 754-4043.
