Do you love books so much you devour them? Are you good with puns? Can you create an edible masterpiece? Then you’ll want to register your entry for the 7th Annual Seattle Edible Book Festival which takes place on Saturday, March 31 at the Good Shepherd Center from 12:00PM-3:00PM. Entries are due in email by midnight, March 28 (mail to: [email protected]).
Every year, families, foodies, bibliophiles, punsters, and chefs come together to display their masterpieces in front of the festival judges. Here are last year’s winners:
- Most Drop Dead Georgeous: Crack Up, by F. Scott Fitzjello, artists Mark Wilson and Mary Welch
- Most Pun-derful: Fool of a Took
- Most Delectably Appetizing: Unberryble Lightness of Being
- Best Young Edible Artist: Sea of Rolls (interpretation of Sea of Trolls)
- Best in Show (people’s favorite): Lord of the Fries (based on Lord of the Flies and Look It’s Jesus), artists Suze Woolf and Cath Carine
Even if you don’t register an entry, you can still come to the Edible Book Festival to check out all of the creative masterpieces on display. It’s free for those with entries, and $10 for those without an entry. But hey, come 2:00pm, the winners will have been announced by emcee Nancy Guppy and all of the Edible Books will be available to eat, accompanied with tea, coffee, and milk!
The Edible Book Festival is produced by the Seattle Center for Book Arts, supported by a grant from the Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs.
The 7th Annual Edible Book Festival will held on the 4th floor of The Good Shepherd (4649 Sunnyside Avenue North), on Saturday, March 31, from 12:00PM – 3:00PM. Festival organizers suggest that if you don’t come with an entry, you arrive no later than 1:30PM so you can see all the entries before they’re devoured.
