Readers: Start your ovens! As part of the International Edible Book Festival the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council will be hosting a local Edible Book Festival at Third Place Commons located within the Town Center at Lake Forest Park.

Edible books are made of food and inspired by a book or pun on a book title.

The March 30 event will be held from 11am – 3pm, it is FREE and open to the public. So come out and enjoy these mouthwatering manuscripts, or brave your aprons to create your own succulent storybook. Get inspired at Your creation should be inspired by a book, but made out of edible ingredients. It may look like a book, tablet or scroll, or be completely unique.

The categories include: 1) Most “good enough to eat,” 2) Most PUNderful, 3) Most three-dimensional/architectural, 4) Most literal depiction of the book title and 5) People’s Choice.
