The Faubourg Marigny of New Orleans
authored by Scott S. Ellis
 “An important, distinctive neighborhood that also stands as a sort of microcosm for the city’s evolution, the Faubourg Marigny receives in this book the historical consideration it so well deserves. Scott S. Ellis takes us on a block-by-block, conflict-by-conflict journey stretching from early Creole society to the rise of Frenchmen Street as a cultural mecca.”—Brian Boyles, publisher, Louisiana Cultural Vistas 


Jason Marsalis [Our most recent event before lockdown- March 15, 2020]See more
Location: Frenchmen Art & Books - New Orleans, La. Jason’s gig at Carnegie Hall was canceled 3 days prior to our event. Jason's lovely wife, Kaya, working part-time at our bookstore, was the influencer that landed us a wonderful afternoon of entertainment at the bookstore.  This was our last event before the City of New Orleans shut down all non-essential businesses the next day. We streamed it on FaceTime and captured Jason playing the vibraphone - see link below.
