When LNL’s qualifying Agents venture to Liberty National Convention 2014, they’ll find vibrant history around each corner of New Orleans. And while nearly every building has a story to tell, Faulkner House Books in the French Quarter holds thousands under a single roof.
William Faulkner’s Old Stomping Grounds
This quaint bookstore is named after William Faulkner, the Nobel Prize-winning author of As I Lay Dying and The Sound and the Fury, among many other literary classics. The shop houses a staggering collection of new and used books today, but in 1925 a young Faulkner lived in the same rooms while penning his first novel, Soldiers’ Pay. Knowing the building’s literary roots, the current owner converted the space into a haven for rare books. The store’s collection focuses on Faulkner’s works as well as other Southern U.S. authors like Tennessee Williams and Walker Percy, making it the perfect stop for literature fans to devour the written word.
