Cook a book and eat your words! Literacy Volunteers of Atlanta and the Southeast Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers invite you to unleash your imagination as you cook up a culinary creation with literary inspiration. The 5th annual Edible Books Festival will be held at Wordsmiths Books in our new location on the Decatur Square. To participate in the event, make edible art that has something to do with book shapes or content. All creations will be exhibited to the public and judged on the basis of relevance to the event and creativity involved. Judges will select winners in a variety of categories, and prizes awarded. The festival embraces anything book-related, such as a scene or a character from a book, book covers, or book structure. There are no restrictions on ingredients as long as they are entirely edible --chocolate, cheese, vegetables, anything. All proceeds will benefit Literacy Volunteers of Atlanta in its effort to increase adult literacy.
Set-up begins at 2:30 p.m., and entries will be displayed from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Judging and tasting will be at 4 p.m. The Amateur Division costs $5.00 per entry, and the Professional Division costs $25.00 per entry. To register, visit www.lvama.org or send a check with your registration form to Literacy Volunteers of Atlanta, 246 Sycamore Street, Suite 110, Decatur, GA 30030.
