INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Tahoe Library Coalition is gearing up to host our third annual Edible Books Festival on April 1 from 5-6:30p.m.

An Edible Book Festival is a culinary celebration of a book. Participants base their food creations on the book using a literal OR tongue-in-cheek theme.

Prizes will be awarded for Most Creative and Best Tasting based on public voting. All are welcome to bring a dish, or just stop by to taste and vote at Incline Village Library at 845 Alder Ave.

If you'd like to bring a dish we ask that you RSVP by March 25th to sharvey@washoecounty.us.
