Faulkner House Books
It's hard to avoid the great American literary influences in New Orleans. Truman Capote drank at the Carousel Bar, Tennessee Williams finished A Streetcar Named Desire at the Maison de Ville Hotel, and William Faulkner used to live in this unassuming building in the French Quarter. It now houses this fine book store, which offers a wide range of titles to bookworms beyond those written by the man himself. A self-described 'sanctuary of fine literature,' the store also holds events to foster the local literary community and is a great place to duck into to escape the clamor of the Quarter.
