A Sense of Place

pl

I’m one of those insufferable bibliophiles who get a thrill from visiting the real world locations that I’ve read about in books. Now there’s a newly revamped website to appeal to book lovers everywhere. Placing Literature  centers on a crowd sourced website that collects information about literary locations. Readers, writers, librarians, teachers, and book lovers in general have mapped nearly 3,000 places from novels, short stories, poems, and plays on an interactive world map. Each spot has a location card that offers insightful information about the geographic location and its literary connection. The place cards show a photo of the relevant spot linked to Google Maps. Users can search Placing Literature by place, author, or book. You can also browse collections of literary locations that have been curated by authors, publishers, librarians, and museums.
