Yes, you can have your book at eat it too. The University of Puget Sound’s annual Edible Book Festival is on again this Monday in the Collins library, spurring dozens of highly competitive and wacky entries from “Much Andouille About Nothing” to “Of Rice and Hen.” It’s part of the international Edible Book Festival. The categories are extensive – including Most Humorous, Most Geautiful, Most Delicious and Creeps Me Out – and the only rules are that it be (mostly) edible and inspired by a book. The festival is held April 1. Entry drop-off 8-11 a.m., show hours 11 a.m.-4 p.m., awards ceremony 3:30-4 p.m. with light refreshments (but, alas, no book eating). Free. Collins Memorial Library, University of Puget Sound, 1500 N. Warner St., Tacoma. pugetsound.edu, books2eat.com
