Welcome to the London Literary Salon

The London Literary Salon creates community around the study of great literature.
The Salon offers unique and inclusive discussion-based studies of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and drama—weaving the ideas of participants with questions the books raise about what it is to be human.
Carefully facilitated, each study is dynamic and expansive in scope. Studies range from one-meeting intensives to six-month odysseys.
See our current offerings below.
