Library maps out Toronto's literary neighbourhoods
Browse books set in Toronto neighbourhood
The neighbourhood library has its share of neighbourhood books.
Toronto Public Library has compiled a list of books set in Toronto neighbourhoods, and then mapped the books by neighbourhood.
A young woman is murdered by a gang after dinner in Chinatown. The child of a single mother attracts the attention of an obsessive neighbour in Cabbagetown. A woman who lives on Toronto Island is haunted by the friendship of her beautiful but evil college friend.
Those are just some of the plot points the library collected from books by authors like Margaret Atwood, Michael Redhill, Rabindranath Maharaj and more.
Click on any one of the 19 book icons over the neighbourhood to see the books set in that area, or see the library's list here.
