Put your chef’s thinking cap on and come up with some literary delicacies for the Banned Book Week Edible Book Contest, sponsored by Read to Succeed, Seminole State College of Florida's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). 

The contest, which will be held at all four campuses, is open to students, faculty and staff. Awards will be presented for the top books on each campus as well as for a collegewide "Best Banned Book."

It’s a great time to mix your love of cooking with your love of reading, according to Read to Succeed Director Carissa Baker.
