Eat your books
Eastern Washington University Libraries is hosting Books2Eat on Monday. And home cooks of all levels are invited to create an edible treat that doesn’t require refrigeration but does carry a literary theme.
Past entries have included cakes, sandwiches, cookies, muffins and cupcakes. Examples include a pink Rice Krispies pig for “Charlotte’s Web” and a SpongeBob Square Cake.
Everyone is invited to vote for their favorites, then help consume the creations. All entries will be sliced and served for free to all in attendance.
Entries can represent any part of a book – from its title and author to a certain character or setting. Awards will be given for “my favorite” and “best represents the title.”
The event runs from 1 to 4 p.m. in the lobby of the JFK Library. Voting takes place until 2:30 p.m., when eating commences.
Call (509) 359-2264 for more information. On the Web: ewu.edu/about/ewu-events.
