Literary Louisville

Literary Louisville is a set of dynamic maps that attempt to capture the city of Louisville’s literary history. From the immigration of George Keats (John Keats’ brother), to the visits of Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde, to the fictional wedding of Tom and Daisy Buchanan, Louisville has had a long literary history. But just as importantly, modern-day Louisville is host to Louisville Literary arts and the Writer’s Block Festival, an active theater community, independent bookstores, and a growing number of little free libraries.

Literary Louisville is an attempt to capture this multi-faceted literary city and present the various sites that comprise it. Along with a dynamic map containing a large number of varied literary sites, Literary Louisville also uses story maps and web applications to present the events and stories that lie behind these locations.
