Where Toronto - - BEST OF THE CITY -

A new book­store open­ing in Toronto is like a baby be­ing born in The Hand­maid’s Tale: rare, sa­cred, and cause for cel­e­bra­tion. Queen Books, a small Les­lieville store­front, is sweet and folksy, with books dis­played on an­tique ta­bles and well-trod­den Per­sian rugs un­der­foot. The ro­bust col­lec­tion, hand-picked by own­ers Alex Snider and Liz Burns, in­cludes a hefty pile of en­gross­ing beach reads with a lit­er­ary tilt. And if you’re the kind of per­son who needs to dis­cuss what you read, the store hosts a bevy of events, in­clud­ing the Mur­derino Book Club, de­voted to true-crime fa­nat­ics. 914 Queen St. E., queen­books.ca
