Over the mountains

I had a wonderful time at the writers festivals this fall in Winnipeg, Calgary, Whistler, and Vancouver. It was a privilege to read with so many great authors (Dennis Lee, Steven Heighton, Nathan Englander, Kathleen Winter, Susin Nielsen, Any Jones, Kyo Maclear, Sidney Smith...) and visit so many great schools. I'm always impressed by the positive feeling in schools these days. This drawing was done by a student in Whistler, B.C., who imagined the little blue chair floating over the Whistler and Blackcomb mountains that loom over her school. Nicely done!
