As mentioned in our Eat our Words Readers Festival post, the Library is hosting an Edible Book competition next Friday October 4 from 2pm.What are Edible Books? You can make, bake, cook, or craft an edible book! It can look like a book, be based on a book, feature characters from a book, you name it. Edible books will be a community competition with Open, Junior and Library staff categories with prizes of ABC shop vouchers!

Bring in your edible book on the Friday afternoon for judging at 2 pm and then at 4 pm we’ll eat it. An entry form is available to download here, and if you’d like to see some examples of Edible Books that Illionois Library did a couple of years ago click here.

Eat Our Words – What’s cooking at your Library?

Simon BryantThis year’s Library Readers Festival starts next week! Reading is food for the mind, so this year we’ll be sharing our love for reading and our love of eating with a range of events coupling two of our favourite past times.

From discovering foods that grow wild in your neighborhood, to creating edible versions of your favourite stories, you’ll enjoy special talks and demonstrations.

Special guest celebrity chef Simon Bryant will talk ‘cooking and booking’ with his book Simon Bryant’s Veggies on Friday October 4 at 3pm.

There will also be a live radio broadcast with 891 ABC Adelaide’s Afternoons Program with Sonya Feldhoff from 1-4pm
