This beautiful, rainbow hued igloo was designed by Edmonton's Brigid Burton, who wanted to entertain her daughter and her daughter's boyfriend (an engineer student), visiting from New Zealand over winter break.

the free PAGES library conference tomorrow morning at the Stanley Milner Library. My keynote is at 9:15 AM, followed by a Q&A at 1130h and a signing at 1, before I head out to Vancouver for the Vancouver Writers Festival where I'll be doing two ticketed events; one with William Gibson and the other with Margaret Atwood and Pasha Malla. There's more stuff in Vancouver to follow, then Victoria, Seattle, Toronto and Boston (here's the full schedule). I hope you'll make it -- tell your friends! — Cory
