DRACUT -- Parker Memorial Library will host the "The Great Dracut Bake-Off" on Saturday, Oct. 6. All local bakers are invited to compete.

All you have to do is bake any book-themed cake and bring it to the library's meeting room by noon. A panel of library judges will award first, second and third places in the following categories: professional; adult; teen (grades 6-12); and child (grades 3-5, with minimal help from an adult).

Judging will take place from 2:30 to 3 p.m., with the winners announced at 3:15. Judging will be based on overall design and "wow appeal," as well as taste.

Entries must include an index card listing all ingredients.

The Great Dracut Bake-Off is a Dracut Reads program.
