Park Central Branch Library kicks off the Big Read of The Call of the Wild during the April First Friday Art Walk with an exhibit of Photographs from the Life of Jack London and our annual Edible Books Festival. Professional bakers will present cakes fashioned after the themes from this year’s book, The Call of the Wild. This year’s competition includes entries from Stacey’s Sweets, Hy-Vee Bakery, Sam’s Club Bakery and TwentyOne Cakes. The “edible books” will be on display so you can vote for your favorite. We’ll announce the winner after 7 p.m., and then we’ll eat cake! Also, enjoy Fare of the Wild: See how simple goodness is made  as Christine Daues of Granolove will demonstrate how the Springfield-based company makes a wholesome granola, and learn how it grew from a kitchen project to a company with sales worldwide.
