Books 2 Eat 

Most people like a good book, and it becomes even better when it’s good enough to eat. There were lots of edible books at Eastern Maine Community College Wednesday.The Friends of the EMCC Library were hosting their 8th annual Books 2 Eat competition. People of all ages were asked to use edible materials to depict one of their favorite books. You could find everything from the Enchanted Forest, to Inch by Inch to March of the Penguins. Lois Marchand, Board Member for Friends of the EMCC Library says, ost of the entries were cakes, but some weren’t. “We have some nice ones that are not cake, that are vegetables. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one. There are just some very unique entries. It just always amazes me what people can come up with.”There were several categories for judging including Professional Chef, Children under 12 and Stephen King Representation.Folks who attended the event voted for their favorite. Then afterwards the masterpieces were either going to be auctioned off, or cut up and eaten.
