As you may have seen on a few other blogs by now, a baker's dozen of Montreal bloggers got together last weekend over lunch to talk about books, publishers, authors and all sorts of book-industry related events and how we as bloggers in Montreal could encourage more book related activity to occur in our city. I had a fabulous time and was very surprised when I realized it was time to go! The afternoon passed by in a flash.
Our facebook group started small with just a couple of bloggers (was it Cat and Lucy?) but quickly grew to fifteen. And we know there are others out there! If you'd like to look around and see what book events are happening in the Montreal area and to keep updated on future ones, please visit our page, Montreal Book Lovers, and like us! The photo below was taken by our very accommodating waiter at Guido and Angelina's restaurant in downtown Montreal.
It was a fabulous afternoon! Thanks to Tina and several publishers, our group members walked away with quite a few books. As a matter of fact, there were several that we had to draw for! Many, many thanks to these publishers:
