At this time, due to the new city-wide mandate, we have sadly made the decision to not allow customers to browse in the store. Please know that we take the health of our customers and booksellers very seriously.  We are taking extra steps to clean and sanitize the shop and also the books that go out for pickup and delivery. 

We will still be available every day from 10:00AM - 5:00PM to help you with your book needs. You can call us (504-895-2266) or contact us via email ( or place orders through our website (
We are offering multiple ways to get books to you:
  • Curbside pickup for orders - Give us a call, and we will run your order down to the front door or to your car. 
  • We are offering free delivery within a 5 mile area of the Book Shop for phone orders (East Bank).
  • We offer free media mail shipping on orders over $50 for website and phone orders.
Like many small business we are already feeling the impact of this virus, in the form of cancelled events, lower traffic, and diminished sales.  We appreciate your continued patronage and look forward to seeing you back in the book shop in the not too distant future. 
Gift cards can be purchased now to use anytime, which can help a small business get through hard times such as this.

In times like this a book may seem like a frivolous expense but it just might be the distraction you need to regroup and face the day.
At this time many of the events listed on our calendar have been  postponed or cancelled.  We will update you of any postponement or cancellation on a case-by-case basis. 
Authors need our support now as well. Many authors who have had their events cancelled have agreed to send us signed book plates so that you can still get a signed book. We will be posting this information as we find out.

Thank you for all your continued support.
