This bookstore is in a historic building in the Rink shopping centre. We really liked the selection they had. Books about New Orleans but also a great selection of other books. My husband bought Wicked River there.

We found this wonderful old school book shop when we went to take the Historic Garden District tour. This is a place that all visitors and locals should patronize!

We went to the Garden District Book Shop to meet our Garden District Tour and this place is a one-of-a-kind - a place that clearly cares about books, literacy, and authors!

Came upon this shop while waiting to take a tour of the garden district. Quaint shop with local as well as well know authors stopping in to sign their books. Lots of signed books available. Staff friendly and helpful!

The ladies working were fairly chatty to each other as we went in so they largely talked the entire time we were there and left us alone. The bookstore itself is fairly impressive. A lot stocked into a small space. A really nice sampling of...More

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
