Calling all bookworms, bakers, and banned book enthusiasts! Westerly Library and Wilcox Park is celebrating Banned Books Week (September 23-29) with a special exhibit of edible art!
We’re looking for individuals, or teams, to submit “edible books” based on books that are/have been banned or challenged (see lists below). Submissions can look like a book, be a play on words using the title, or otherwise represent the book…no cooking experience is necessary, only creativity and imagination.
Event will include a showing and judging of the creations, open to the public, followed by a tasting and award ceremony (note: all submissions must be made of food, but all do not need to taste good)!
You must register by Thursday September 27th, and complete an entry form. For more information, or to register, contact:
(401) 596-2877 x308
