Every year, the Library Board of the Winnipeg Public Library organizes “Books 2 Eat,” a fabulous edible art exhibition. This year’s Books 2 Eat will take place on Saturday, April 16 at the Millennium Library.
Love books and/or food? You’re invited to create an edible piece of art! The only two essentials are that your creation must be: made entirely of edible materials, raw or cooked; and fall under this year’s broad theme of “poetry” to celebrate National Poetry Month. How you choose to interpret the rules is part of the fun!
How to Enter
Visit the Books 2 Eat website, fill out an online entry form, and email it to Books2Eat@winnipeg.ca. The deadline to submit an entry form is coming up on Monday, April 11. Of course, your edible creation doesn’t have to be dropped off at the Library until April 15 or 16.
But there’s lots more to enjoy at Books 2 Eat, even if you aren’t tempted to try your hand at edible art.
Think you can hunt down food-related clues through all four floors of the Millennium Library? Kids and teens can pick up a smorgasbord scavenger Hunt sheet at the Children’s Desk and find out! Hand in your answers (right or wrong) by 3 pm and you’ll be entered in a draw for prizes.
From 1 to 2 pm, families can enjoy a delectable story time filled with mouth-watering tales and a pinch of tasty verses – plus a chance to get hands-on and decorate your own delicious cupcake. (Registration required; call 204-986-6488.)
Browse through a buffet of snack-sized displays! Watch cooking techniques demonstrated and try your hand at food-related crafts and activities from 12 to 3 pm.
And, of course, you can feast your eyes on a buffet of Books 2 Eat creations and enter a draw for a chance to take one of the edible artworks home. Join emcee Chrissie Troy to find out who the scavenger hunt champions and the lucky winners will be.
