Books set in Kensington Market

Posted on July 17, 2013 in Kensington Market

The colourful history and heritage of Kensington Market is a rich vein for literary mining. One of the oldest areas of Toronto, Kensington started out as a neighbourhood for newly arrived immigrants fresh off the boat.

Two books that use Kensington as the primary setting are:

The Gnomes Eye by Anna Kerz

and

The Market Wedding by Cary Fagan illustrated by Regolo Ricci

Both are available at amazon.ca
