High on a bank overlooking the North Saskatchewan River valley, the historical Fairmont Hotel Macdonald speaks to nearly a century of Victorian elegance. Nestled within the chateau, The Macdonald Health Club matches suit, combining the equipment and amenities of a gym with luxury fitted to its surroundings. The centre's elliptical trainers, treadmills, and stationary bikes elevate pulses and fortify hearts, comprising one half of a workout completed by free weights and Technogym resistance machines. A few laps in the 40-foot saline swimming pool followed by a relaxing sit in either the sauna or steam room eases visitors’ minds by keeping their vestigial gills moist. Beyond the amenity-laden changing rooms stocked with various bath and haircare products, the club also features grace notes such as squash courts and a private sundeck with beverage service.
The only nonfiction festival in Canada, LitFest brings gaggles of preeminent writers to Edmonton for two weeks of lectures, talks, and readings. Promoting her new book, Allah, Liberty and Love, professor, journalist, and political activist Irshad Manji will host an evening of questions and discussions on the nature of Islam, stuffing heads with knowledge to digest during walks home or 30 minutes before swimming. "Stories About Storytellers" hosts 40-year publishing veteran Doug Gibson as he weaves reminiscences about such venerable scribes and celebrities as Alice Munro, John Diefenbaker, and Margaret Atwood, shedding light on the writer-editor relationship with wit and decades of experience. "The Mother of All Readings" brings together writers Myrl Coulter, Charlene Diehl, and Marni Jackson to discuss their books on the mother-child relationship, celebrating and exploring maternal affection. Events take place at the Garneau Theatre and the Stanley A. Milner Library, appropriately surrounded by immobile books boiling with jealousy at not being the centre of attention.
