Whose Cake Reigns Supreme at the Darien Library? We’ll Help Decide!

Chocolate Cake Slice with Raspberries

Have your cake and eat it too?  Yeah, we can handle that!  Especially because the Darien Library is having one of the most epic book events that has ever been created.  This is all part of their program, One Book, One Community–bringing Darien together through reading the same book.  The novel this time around is City of Thieves by David Benioff.  Erin Shea, Head of Adult Programming, explains, “Colonel Grechko tells Lev and Kolya that he will give them their freedom if they bring him a dozen eggs for his daughter’s wedding cake.”

A natural extension of this was to create their own kind of challenge…a cake baking competition.  Participants will bring in a homemade cake that will be offered up for judging by OmNomCT and a representative from CTBites.  We’ll be judging the cakes based on taste, appearance, texture, creativity, and the name.  Don’t fret, though.  There’s plenty of cake for everybody to try, too.  Did we mention that the winner will be able to snag $100?

All the literary and culinary action comes together this Thursday, 4/18, at 7 pm.  There will be additional parking on Thorndal Circle (behind Nielsen’s) if you can’t get a spot.  The book talk will take place on 4/16 at 7 pm and will be led by library staff members.  Then, on 4/25 at 7, David Benioff himself will show up and will speak about his book.  The book that was selected for young adult readers is Breaking Stalin’s Nose by Eugene Yelchin.

We hope to see you there!
