Southport, CT - Moby Duck? For Whom the Bell Pepper Tolls? Punsters, this is your time to shine. Pequot Library is currently accepting entries for its first ever Edible Book Festival, which will be held on Saturday, February 1 in conjunction with Take Your Child to the Library Day.

“Edible Book Festivals are held internationally at libraries and other educational institutions annually, usually in April,” said Jane Manners, the Library’s Children’s Librarian. “Edible books are typically lighthearted and punny sculptural food displays inspired by books. ‘The Communist Antipasto’ (The Communist Manifesto) and ‘The Handmaid’s Tamale’ (The Handmaid’s Tale) are two popular examples. Really, the punnier, the better! If you love books and food, this is your opportunity to get creative.”

The Library’s call for entries will be open through January 31st. Cost of entries is $8. There will be categories for individual and group entries, and winners will receive a $25 gift certificate to The Pantry in Fairfield. Not just for kids, this is a great chance for adults to get creative and “play with their food.”

Edible creations can be dropped off at the Library on January 31 and will be exhibited during Library hours on February 1, 2020. Participants can pick up their entries by the end of the day on February 2 and bring them home, where they should feel free to eat their words! Please visit the calendar at www.pequotlibrary.org to learn more about the Edible Book Festival and how to enter. For information: (203) 259-0346 ext. 115.
