In Celebration of National Library Appreciation week, the Miller Center hosted its annual “Edible Book Festival” on Tuesday, April 14. The event was held in the main foyer of the library from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Entries were displayed on tables for students, faculty, staff members and families in the community to vote on their favorite entries. The entry winners would receive prizes including a tablet, flash drives provided by Huskytech and gift cards to Crafts Direct.
The event also featured side activities in the cafe, designed to entertain families and friends. Activities included a craft area, music provided by KVSC 88.1 FM, a guessing game with past entries in photo form, a place to sketch out book covers and refreshments.
Different entries included a dessert cake designed like the “Eye of Sauron” from “The Lord of the Rings,” a “Wild rumpus salad” from “Where the Wild Things Are,” and “Truffula trees” from “The Lorax.” Businesses submitted entries including Cash Wise, and Pete and Joy’s Bakery.
The winners were Tammy Mayerhofer for her “The Lorax” inspired cake, Anna Alvord’s entry inspired by “Island of the Blue Dolphins” and “We’re all Mad here” by Bridget Healy inspired by “Alice in Wonderland.”
