This is not another book club.
Le Salon Literary Discussions bridges the gap between the classroom and the typical book club. By combining a friendly atmosphere with interesting research, historical context, and critical questions, I help readers dive deeper into the books they love.

Ever been to a book club that didn’t even discuss the book?
Yeah, me too.
Hi, I'm Marisa.
Founder of Le Salon Literary Discussions, English literature MA, and bibliophile.
It all started with a love of reading... and grew into a need to talk and connect with others about what I was reading.
Like many of you I have been a voracious reader since I was a child. I kept trying different book clubs, but often I was the only one reading the book and the discussion was lacking. I thought:
"There has to be a way to bridge the intelligent discussion of the classroom with the friendliness of a book club. "
And Le Salon Literary Discussions was created—a welcoming place for bibliophiles from around the world.
