A literary salon is all about gathering to talk about and critique literature and, in 2024, we gather virtually.

What you get:

  • Up to 90 minutes of book-focussed discussion on great literature.

  • Interesting and well-researched facts about the author and their work to dive deeper into the novel being discussed.  

  • Important historical context to better understand references in the novel.

  • Convenience of just reading and showing up—date, time, and technology are all sorted for you.

  • Facilitated by an individual who has a Master's degree in English literature.

  • Meet and converse with other bookworms from around the world.

Better than a book club.

Upcoming Virtual Literary Salons

Salon Schedule

Every month we host two online book discussions: one on a modern novel and one on a classic novel. See the upcoming schedule for both below.

The book buying buttons below are affiliate links that will take you to Amazon. Thank you for supporting my small business!

"The discussion really made me think about themes I hadn't considered and helped me to appreciate the book even more. Le Salon was exactly what I have been looking for in a book discussion!"

--Cassandra C.

After working in communications for 10 years, my desire to engage seriously with literature led me back to academia to earn my Master’s degree in English literature, graduating with the highest honours. My MA major research paper focussed on the psychology of community in Frankenstein and Wuthering Heights.

My academic research skills and experience facilitating in the boardroom and the classroom make me uniquely qualified to facilitate friendly and informative virtual literary salons. Grab a drink and connect with bibliophiles from around the world!


This is better than a book club.

 Meet Your Host: Marisa 

“It was great to have a more formal understanding of the novel, as opposed to my own Googling.”

--Amy H.

“It was a wonderful experience! I was nervous about talking but Marisa made it so much fun, with really great insight and discussion points. It was incredibly thought provoking!


--Kira B.
