Queensland places in literature
By Administrator | 4 April 2014
We collect Queensland literature – including books written about Queensland. Now you can see the places in Queensland that feature in these books using a map interface called Placing Literature.
“Placing Literature is an online database of places from scenes in literature – sourced and plotted by readers and researchers. Created by an author, a geographer, and an engineer, the goal of Placing Literature is to connect readers to the places they are reading about, highlighting the meanings, values and emotions attached to a space.”
Take a look at the map to see books about your place or take a tour of Queensland by reading the titles on the map. If you’re traveling to Queensland, get a flavour of the place by reading about it before you get here and check out the places you’d like to visit – inspired by literature!
And if you’ve published a book set in Queensland please let us know – we might want to add it to our collection.
