A literary salon is all about gathering to critique and analyze literature and, in 2023, we gather virtually. Join a global community of literature lovers.

Better than a book club.

Grab a drink and connect.

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 book lovers from around the world.

"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 not another book club.
