An exciting new (edible) event!  Participate or view the International Edible Book Festival at the Palmetto Bay Branch Library on March 26th at 3 p.m. (participants must arrive at 2 p.m.).  The teen club, Bookbusters, inspired this event.

Interested in creating your own edible version of anything literary (book character, author, title of a book, etc.)?  Participants will bring their book inspired entries to the library, where the library will display them as an exhibit. 

The entry form is due on Wednesday, March 23rd by 8 p.m. (late entries will not be accepted). 

The library provided a photo of a sample for inspiration, a cake for Beastly by Alex Flinn made by Cakes by Gaby!
