Fayette County: Bluegrass Edible Book Competition April 5 at area libraries

Lexington Herald-LeaderMarch 24, 2014 

Birds carry message of service to others As part of a project called Tweet Service, students from the Bryan Station High School National Art Honor Society have made and decorated 20 clay birds, which have been hidden in the stacks of the Lexington Public Library's Central Library. Whoever finds a bird gets to keep it and choose from among three places where the artist will perform an hour of volunteer service.

The first Bluegrass Edible Book Competition will be April 5 as six regional public libraries participate in the event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Set up for entrants begins at 10 a.m.

Separate edible book contests will be held at each library and the public votes for winning entries for taste, creativity, interpretation/concept, presentation, wit/humor. Judges select the overall winner to compete in an inter-library competition with a grand prize of $500.
