Bram & Bluma Appel Salon
The Bram & Bluma Appel Salon, located on the second floor of the Toronto Reference Library, is a place where writers, thinkers, artists and innovators come together for conversation and debate.
Since opening in 2009, we have hosted a wide array of fascinating people, including Umberto Eco, Jeffery Eugenides, Malcolm Gladwell, John Irving, Donna Leon, Stephen Lewis, Anne Rice, Salman Rushdie, Margaret Trudeau, Tim Flannery, Jeanette Winterson, and many others. Please join us at one of our upcoming events.
