Le Salon Website Design-5.png

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


I hope you’ll join one of our virtual literary salons which focus on classic literature or use one of Le Salon’s discussions guides on contemporary fiction to host your own literary salon at home.


This isn't another book club
