  • This is a place to which I always make a strong effort to go when I am in New Orleans. I've read and truly enjoyed quite a bit of Faulkner's work, and it gives me a certain joy to visit a place where ...  more »

  • Primarily retail, Faulkner's offers a healthy selection of rare and first edition volumes (mostly of local literati). On display are letters and photographs from many of these same local authors, and the staff is professional yet warm. Excellent poetry selections.
  • What an adorable book store. Worth a stop just to see Faulkner's house, but the bookseller has curated a fabulous collection for you to peruse made up of classics, new, and interesting titles. Didn't buy anything this time, but I had to restrain myself.
  • Rare finds, antiques, new releases, so many things to see. Very helpful shop attendant.
  • An incredibly small book store, but a great piece of history, and stellar curated selection
  • I wasn't expecting this. If you were looking for a specific book from a local press then go here. Also sort of hard to find.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
