Your Host: Marisa
Hello! I am the founder of Le Salon Literary Discussions and a huge literature nerd! I created Le Salon to help those who also love literature get more from their reading, engage in enlightened discussions, and overall get closer to the novels they love.
I worked in communications for 10 years before deciding to re-evaluate what I wanted to do day-to-day, and that was to read, write, and talk about those two things! I went back to school where I earned my Master’s degree in English Literature, graduating with the highest honours. I also hold an undergraduate degree in English and History and a creative writing certificate. I have been published in Cocktails with Miss Austen: Conversations on the World’s Most Beloved Author, Fairy Tales and Folklore Re-imagined, and an issue of Blink-Ink.
My creative writing experience as well as my capabilities in the classroom and the boardroom makes me uniquely qualified to facilitate literary discussions. I pose questions that examine themes, narrative structures, and characters, encouraging readers to use the primary text to support their analysis
This isn't another book club.
