Find the birthplace of your favorite novel with “Placing Literature” [map]


For bibliophiles, a dream vacation isn’t complete without a literary reference, so travel the world in bliss with the Placing Literature map, which allows you to have a “novel” experience wherever you may roam.

According to the website:

Placing Literature is a one of the projects of the Reintegrate New Haven, an initiative to foster relationships and dialogue, and encourage collaboration between the arts and sciences.  To that end, Placing Literature is an effort to combine the art of literature and the science of geography, and create a database of places from scenes in literature—sourced and plotted by readers.

Currently, the map includes 1,500 entries, but readers are welcome to fill in any missing pieces.
