Photos from this morning's Words On Screen seminar.
I needed a permission letter to get in. Note Tavia's stationary.
Perry videotaping the panel discussion.
The Words On Screen speakers: Judith Keenan, Susin Nielsen, and Paul Quarrington.
We got to watch a bit of one of Susin's projects, Alice, I Think. Susin has written episodes of Ready or Not, which I'd say is only to Degrassi High as the greatest Canadian teen sitcom (which Susin has done, too).
