On July 22, 2011, Ottawa-area writers and illustrators gathered for SCBWI Canada East's first Ottawa Schmooze. The venue was the Vietnam Palace on Somerset Street, and the program included lunch (delicious!) and conversation with colleagues and friends. The group shared a little show and tell (mostly tell), and compiled a list of favourite kidlit blogs and recent reads.
