  • Lovely bookstore in the former home of William Faulkner. Proprietor was very friendly and had great recommendations! So glad we made this a stop.

  • My daughter and I loved this little spot. The gentleman working here was knowledgeable and excited about recommending different genres of books. Really neat place.

  • Faulkner House is till a great place to visit, but most of the books are too expensive. There are several Southern authors that I enjoy reading; for the past few years, I enjoyed reading Ellen...

  • Very neat place! It's always so cool when you can visit a place where a famous author penned some of their work. Even cooler that this place then became a bookstore. Its a narrow place, so you can't fit many people in there at once, so keep in mind when you decide to visit that you may have to wait a few minutes to look inside, but it is well worth it. Soldiers Pay was written here and of course you can leave with a copy of the book yourself!
  • Beautifully kept historical building and bookshop. Only 4 people allowed in at a time, so you may have to wait outside for a bit. Good selection of hardback titles.
  • Lovely little hole in the wall book store with a curated selection of local authors and local themed books as well as a nice mix of broader genres and current choices. At the time of my visit, there was a 4 person max in the store which as small as it is, that seems appropriate even pre-COVID. Very helpful if you are looking for a new book to jump into.
  • Great little bookstore. Not a Faulkner fan but I love history and I'm an English major so had to visit. Stopped by twice and got two books I've been looking for but couldn't find. Lots of classic lit.
  • We were recommended this book store by one of our guides, and it was spot on!! What a great unique book store which was so unexpected in the French Quarter!! Not the normal tourist location!! Great finds for the book lover!!!
