The Edinburgh Literary Salon is a social event, bringing together people of all literary persuasions to share, converse, and enthuse. We aim to be a fully inclusive, respectful, open community, and for this reason our events are always free.

Our guest speaker is storyteller Fiona Herbert, whose chance encounter with Richard Blair (the son of George Orwell) while on holiday in the Western Isles, led to a storytelling project, Corryvreckan - Inspiralled Tales. We encourage people to attend: https://sisf.online.red61.co.uk/event/913:3735/(this will open in a new window)

For our November Salon, we will post a short video of one of the Cailleach Tales, exclusively recorded for us, plus an interview with Fiona. We then invite you to join in a Zoom Q&A session, followed by a general chat about literature, folk-tales, chance encounters, and anything bookish.

The formal part of the evening is from 6-7pm, and people are welcome to stay in the Zoom to chat over a glass of wine for longer. Wine isn't provided online, since this is the "Literary Salon from Your Home." Other beverage choices are entirely up to you!

Come along and be inspired/inspiralled...
