After 4 years of operation, The Stacks Bookstore closed in September 2018. Open in October 2014, The Stacks was New Orleans’ only independent bookstore devoted entirely to contemporary art books, from exhibition catalogues to monographs, theory publications, visual and graphic arts, architecture, photography, children books… as well as a wide range of international magazines. With its carefully curated inventory, The Stacks was a destination for New Orleans’ book lovers and curious minds.
I couldn't have been more honored by how the bookstore was received, seeing it blossom from a few shelves within in a furniture shop in The Marigny to a large operation within the Contemporary Arts Center was an immensely fulfilling adventure. I'm incredibly grateful to have been able to share with New Orleans a part of what I believe in through a space where people could feel welcomed, inspired and safe.
Having been independently owned and operated from the beginning, I can only encourage you to support as much as possible your local businesses in any way you can. We need each other.
An immense thank you for all of your love, loyalty and support throughout these past 4 years.
and the Stacks Bookstore team
