Thank you for visiting the Tubby & Coo's Mid-City Book Shop virtual book fair for the Saints & Sinners Literary Festival!
From February 22nd to March 31st, this page will act as the virtual book fair for the Saints & Sinners Literary Festival. When you purchase books through this virtual book fair, proceeds benefit Tubby & Coo's Mid-City Book Shop AND the Saints & Sinners Festival, who will split the profits from this book fair.
The Saints and Sinners Literary Festival was founded in 2003 as a new initiative designed as an innovative way to reach the community with information about HIV/AIDS, particularly disseminating prevention messages via the writers, thinkers and spokes-people of the LGBTQ+ community. It was also formed to bring the LGBTQ+ literary community together to celebrate the literary arts.
The Festival has grown into an internationally-recognized event that brings together a who’s who of LGBTQ+ publishers, writers and readers from throughout the United States and beyond. The Festival, held over 3 days each spring at the Hotel Monteleone in the New Orleans French Quarter, features panel discussions and master classes around literary topics that provide a forum for authors, editors and publishers to talk about their work for the benefit of emerging writers and the enjoyment of fans of LGBTQ+ literature.

HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP THROUGH SHOPPING!
We recommend using a PC for a better browsing experience.
1) Click on the categories below to shop the catalog, or use the search bar at the top of this page to search for any item.
2) Have your order shipped directly to your home.
3) Or, choose to have your order gift wrapped and mailed directly to your gift recipient. You can even add a custom message!
4) Share this great shopping opportunity with your family and friends! Every purchase means so much.
NOTE: You may see that many titles are on backorder. This is because the book industry supply chain has been severely disrupted by COVID-19. Books are taking much longer than usual to print, get through the warehouse process, and ship. We recommend backordering books now so that you receive them when they are next printed.
Get more lists and recommendations on our main store Bookshop page.
Thank you so much for all of your support.
More About Tubby & Coo's
Tubby & Coo’s is a local queer-owned, progressive, nerdy, independent book shop in Mid-City New Orleans focused on science fiction and fantasy, queer, and diverse books. The shop is named after the owner’s grandparents, Tubby & Coo, who grew up in the same neighborhood where the shop is located.
We’re a community center for nerds, geeks, and anyone who doesn't feel supported elsewhere. We believe in creating change through building community, promoting literacy, and demanding social justice. We also ensure our community has access to stories that reflect diverse experiences. We envision a future where everyone is empowered, able, and encouraged to tell their own stories, regardless of social class, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religion, race, age, or culture. Every voice deserves to be heard, and we work to build a world where all voices are equally important.
