Located in a tucked away alley off Jackson Square in the French Quarter, Faulkner Books is a New Orleans hidden gem. Faulkner Books is considered a national literary landmark and a historic location in the city. In 1925, the famous American novelist, William Faulkner, rented rooms in the same building where the bookstore is housed today. Faulkner Books sells new and used books, including classic and rare edition books by Faulkner and other historic writers. Collectors, authors, and visitors who have entered the cozy, literary sanctuary have described Faulkner Books as America's most charming bookstore.
