Literary Treasure

Finished May 31
City of Words: Toronto through her writers' eyes edited by Sarah Elton, photographs by Kevin Robbins
This lovely book collects prose and poetry relating to a variety of areas of Toronto and mixes it with interesting photos of the city. From the historic to the lyrical, the pieces gathered here show how the city has inspired its writers in so many different ways.
I was pleased to see old favourites and intrigued by choices I hadn't been aware of or hadn't yet read (but that are now on my list). The breadth of writers was also very interesting to see.
A great choice for any Torontonian, past or present.
