Literary Salon

We offer a monthly Literary Salon, giving readers the opportunity to discuss and share their favorite recent read. This is a “no-guilt” salon. Participants can show up without anything to share, and drop-ins are welcome.

You may also request to be placed on an e-list which will remind you of the next Salon and send you the most recent book list. Email Lou Pray to be added to the list.
