Garden District Bookshopwebsite. None were happening when I was in town, but I hope to be able to coordinate a trip so that I can attend one! Most of the stock in this delightful shop were new releases, and significant space is made for signed copies. My partner, a John Grisham fan, was delighted to find a signed, first edition of his book Rogue Lawyer. I came away with a signed copy of Joseph Boyden's The Orenda.
There were so many other bookish places I wanted to visit, but just didn't have the time - Maple Street Book Shop, the New Orleans Literary Festival, the Backspace Bar & Kitchen, touring Anne Rice's home, exploring Hotel Monteleone, and more. There are so many reasons for me to trek back for another holiday! If you haven't been there yet, I hope that I've inspired you to make a bookish trip to the Big Easy. If there are other literary events or locations that I should check out on a future vacation, please let me know!
