Eat Your Words is a program open to all patrons, regardless of age, including individuals and families. The challenge is to create an edible book presentation and share it with the community. Participants will meet their neighbors and have the opportunity to display their talents. Creators will use edible items to recreate a title, subject, plot, or character from a book in their home, then bring it in to share in a safe and supportive environment. All community members are invited to view the creations and vote for their favorites. Please be sure to read through the event guidelines and more details below. Registration is required ONLY for those submitting edible entries. Please contact Resa for more information at resa@clearviewlibrary.org.   

EDIBLE BOOKS COMPETITION GUIDELINES

- Individuals or families may submit an entry into the contest

- Entries must be entirely edible (cake, bread, crackers, Jell-o, fruit, vegetables, candy, etc.) and must be able to sit out for 3 hours without melting. Toothpicks to hold pieces together, sticks for cake pops and paper wrappers for cupcakes are permissible. Candies used as decorative elements are also acceptable. We will not be serving the cakes, so please be prepared to take your entry home with you!

- Dimensions of entry must be no more than 16 inches by 24 inches.

- Entry must be related to books in some way. For example, it can look like a book in form/shape, be inspired by a book or author, reproduce a book cover, celebrate a book character, etc. Additionally, please note that your entry does not need to be created with cake - anything edible goes!
