“The Booklover’s Guide to New Orleans”

BATON ROUGE – The literary tradition of New Orleans spans centuries and touches every genre; its living heritage winds through storied neighborhoods and is celebrated at numerous festivals across the city. For booklovers, a visit to the Big Easy isn’t complete without whiling away the hours in an antiquarian bookstore in the French Quarter or stepping out on a literary walking tour. Perhaps only among the oak-lined avenues, Creole town houses, and famed hotels of New Orleans do the lust of “Streetcar Named Desire,” the zaniness of “A Confederacy of Dunces,” the chill of “Interview with the Vampire” or the search of Walker Percy’s “Moviegoer” begin to resonate in all their richness.
