Milligan hosts 9th annual Edible Books Festival

Milligan’s annual Edible Books Festival will be April 15-16, in the P.H. Welshimer Library. The festival welcomes book-related, edible creations. Past entries have included everything from creative concoctions based on book titles to depictions of famous literary characters. The event is free and open to the public.

Contestants may drop off their entries in the Welshimer Room of the library on Monday, April 15, by 10 a.m. The public is invited to view and vote on the entries from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Entries will be judged by a panel for being the tastiest, funniest or “punniest,” most creative, and overall favorite.

On Tuesday, April 16, at 10 a.m., the library staff will announce the winners and award prizes. Everyone is encouraged to eat the entries from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or until consumed.
