Literary Salon: The Art of Intentional Conversationhighly recommended

In this session, I will demonstrate the model I use for a literary salon. I begin by reading a short selection from one of my essays to set a warm tone of invitation and exploration. Then we break into small groups and pass bags around of open-ended discussion questions designed for authentic connection. At the heart of the salon is a search for meaning and drawing out broad themes in literature and life. It’s about creating a safe space for vulnerable sharing. No one will be pressured to participate. I look forward to sharing the literary salon experience with you!
