INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The third annual local Edible Book Festival will be held in the Incline Village Library meeting room on Friday, April 1, at 5 p.m. Everyone is welcome!

Why Edible Books? Because food goes with everything! Although, not always on everything, and April Fool’s Day is the perfect day to eat your words, green eggs and ham, hats and misspellings.

You can eat them paleo, vegetarian, gluten-free, and even sometimes vegan. We have had representations of great literature by master chefs, cottage industries, restaurants, retired firefighters, and third generation chocolatiers in past years.

This is the perfect time for enjoyable snacking with friends, family, and books. Show off your culinary skills while bonding with friends and family in the kitchen when making your entry. We have youth and adult categories for Best Tasting and Most Creative for those who wanted to try out that recipe from a cozy mystery or look up how to make treacle pudding from the Harry Potter series.

If you need help finding a book to inspire you or a book to fit your inspiration, please visit your friendly local library at Sierra Nevada College, Incline Village Library, Kings Beach Library, Truckee Library and/or your local school library. All are staffed by some incredibly creative people.

To participate, please contact me at sharvey@washoecountylibrary.us, come in person Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. before April 1 to the Incline Village Library on 845 Alder Ave, or call 775-832-4130.

We are looking forward to seeing you on the April Fool’s Day with your edible book. All levels of kitchen mastery are accepted. We are also looking for tasters to judge the entries for Most Creative and Best Tasting in adult and youth categories.

Remember — everyone snacks free on April 1st!

Sarah Harvey is a library assistant at the Incline Village Library.
