Books by Country
We thought it would be useful to show readers where books take place throughout the Americas, and so the following map was born. In the process we learned that mapping literature can be difficult given that settings are often vague, referring to a region rather than a country (as in the Caribbean); protagonists travel, especially with books related to immigration; and not infrequently, the location only loosely evokes a place and is, in fact, wholly fictional.
Thus we offer the following resource as a map of selective titles for children’s and young adult literature related to Latin America. Preview the map below or click into it to navigate with more detail.
