Now is the time to grab a spatula and let out a primal scream for Read It and Eat It, our fourth annual edible book festival, is nigh! Our promotion of literacy and gluttony and whimsy will occur in the Glass Pavilion on Friday, April 6th from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. Did I mention eating cake? Because you get to eat cake!

Last year’s festival featured journeys to mystical places, a taco that wasn’t quite what it seemed, and very wrathful grapes. Who knows what culinary mischief lies in the hearts of this year’s baking champions?

As is tradition, prizes will be awarded by popular vote in the following categories: most delicious dessert, funniest dessert, best effort, best literary theme, and overall best in show. Golly gumdrops, do we have prizes! Remember: you have to bake to win!

Ready to register? Then do so quickly. The deadline to enter a cake is 10am on Wednesday, April 4. Need some inspiration? Follow our sugary crumbs to tumblr or flickr to gain inspiration from desserts of years past!
