  • This is an attractive and well-organized bookstore, housed in a rather small space that was once an apartment rented by William Faulkner. It’s a lovely place, like a bookstore you might find in some quirky but well-made independent film.

I found several interesting books... more than I intended to buy when I entered! I look forward to a return visit.
  • Beautiful historical site. Great poetry collection and set of Faulkner originals, but far too small to include much of a selection of titles.
