Chang’s university is a movable school. This novel is — listen to this — about a group from a Chinese university escaping the Japanese invasion of 1937. A group of classmates has been entrusted with the safekeeping of a priceless treasure, a 500-year-old collection of myths and folklore known as the Library of Legends. OK, it’s not in a school, but it’s about a school — and about learning how the bonds of knowledge, and our responsibilities to our classmates and to history, can send us on a life-changing journey.

The Annual Whitefish Winter Carnival kicks off with the coronation of a king and queen, followed by a Penguin Plunge (a hole is cut into Whitefish Lake and participants take a dip to raise funds for charity). Visitors are welcomed by mountain men, penguins and Viking divas, otherwise known as the costume-clad volunteers who share stories and point the curious toward the old-fashioned Main Street parade, an ice sculpting contest, a kids' carnival, a pie social and a pancake breakfast. You can also expect a torchlight ski parade, ski-joring, cross-country ski races and a figure skating demonstration. The festivities are open to the public and most are free. Feb. 7-9, 2020.

Considered one of the oldest winter festivals in the U.S., this family-friendly event includes polar plunges, day and evening parades, ice-horse-racing, bob-sledding and ice carving, as well as a liberal serving of lore. It's said that a New York reporter once referred to St. Paul as "another Siberia, unfit for human habitation" in winter. In response, the Chamber of Commerce set out to prove there was good fun to be had during the frosty days of winter and the Carnival was born. That was in 1885. This year, the youngest generation and their families can join in the Carnival's Moon Glow Pedestrian Parade by wearing costumes and decorating strollers, wagons or other non-motorized transportation for the chance to win prizes.
