New Orleans Children’s Books

One of my favorite hidden treasures of the Jazz Fest is the Book Tent, a pop-up bookstore featuring local authors and curated by the New Orleans Gulf South Bookstore Association (NOGSBA), a consortium of local, independent bookstores. All of the proceeds from book sales go to support children’s literacy through organizations like STAIR (Start the Adventure in Reading), a volunteer-based, non-profit children’s literacy organization that provides reading tutors for public school 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students.

For your viewing pleasure, we’ve created a NOLA Children’s Books pinterest page featuring all of the local children’s book authors we found in the Book Tent. If you notice something missing, please let us know so we can add it to the board.

A big shout-out to The Garden District Book Shop for helping us put this together and shedding some light on the wonderful work the NOGSBA is doing to support literacy in our community.
