Included are privately owned gardens, National Trust gardens, a botanic garden and a royal garden. Among them are Alnwick, Levens, Hidcote, Penshurst, Great Dixter, and, of course, Sissinghurst.

Frostbike: The Joy, Pain and Numbness of Winter Cycling (Rocky Mountain Books). Co-presented by Saskatoon Cycles

The bicycle is fast becoming a ubiquitous form of transportation in cities all over the world, making our urban spaces more efficient, more livable and healthier. But many of those bicycles disappear into basements and garages when the warm months end, parked there by owners fearful of the cold, snow and ice that winter brings. But does it have to be that way?

Over years of trial and error, research, and more than his share of snow and ice, Tom Babin discovered an unknown history of biking, and a new generation designed to make riding in winter safe and fun. He unearthed the world’s most bike-friendly winter city and new approaches to winter cycling from around the world. He also looked inward to discover how the modern world shapes our attitudes toward winter. Perhaps most importantly, he discovered the unique bliss that comes from pedalling through falling snow on a quiet winter night

Tom Babin is an award-winning Canadian journalist who has written for the National Post and for Explore and Swerve magazines. He is features editor at the Calgary Herald, where he also writes the popular "Pedal," one of the most widely read cycling blogs in Canada. He is an avid cyclist who rides a bike to work, to the grocery store and for fun and fitness all year round.

Join Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra Maestro Eric Paetkau and Executive Director Mark Turner as they discuss their upcoming Masters Series concert with pianist Jan Lisiecki (March 5).

Learn more about the music before it hits the stage!

At the age of 20, Jan Lisiecki has placed himself among the upper echelon of classical musicians. The New York Times calls him a pianist that “makes every note count”. In 2013, he was awarded the Leonard Bernstein Prize and named the Grammophon Magazine Young Artist of the Year. His recordings on the Deutsche Grammophon label are critically acclaimed; his Chopin Ιtudes disc named the best recording ever made of Chopin's Ιtudes. Jan has three times sold out recitals in Saskatoon. He now comes back to share his Beethoven Concerto No. 4 – itself an enigma in the genre – just six weeks after he performs the work at Carnegie Hall.

What's Left Behind: A Joanne Kilburn Mystery (McClellan & Stewart). Hosted by Suzanne North, author of Flying Time.

The latest novel in the Joanne Kilbourn Shreve series opens in the month of May, a time of beginnings when all things seem possible. Joanne's husband, Zack, recently elected mayor of Regina, is optimistic that he can garner the public support necessary to make Regina a city that works – not just for the few, but for the many. Their oldest son Peter is marrying Maisie Crawford, a woman as clever and forthright as she is lovely. Their lakeside wedding is a dream come true, but when a former lover of a member of the bridal party shows up, the dream becomes a nightmare. Before the bride's bouquet has wilted, there's an act of sickening cruelty; soon afterwards, there's a murder. Devastated, Joanne and Zack search for answers. As it becomes increasingly unclear whether political agendas, shattered romance, or a secret buried deep in the past have motivated the crimes, the loyalties of the Shreve family are tested. A gripping mystery with a social conscience, this is a novel of high stakes and innocence lost.

Gail Bowen's first Joanne Kilbourn mystery, Deadly Appearances, was nominated for the W.H. Smith/Books in Canada Best First Novel Award, and A Colder Kind of Death won the Arthur Ellis Award for best crime novel; all 15 (and counting!) books in the series have been enthusiastically reviewed. In 2008, Reader's Digest named Bowen Canada's Best Mystery Novelist; in 2009, she received the Derrick Murdoch Award from the Crime Writers of Canada. She has also written plays that have been produced across Canada and on CBC Radio. Now retired from teaching at the First Nations University, she lives in Regina.
