Tubby & Coo’s is a local, queer-owned nerdy book shop in Mid-City New Orleans. We specialize in science fiction, fantasy, queer literature, progressive nonfiction, graphic novels, and children’s books. We’re a community center for nerds, geeks, freaks, and the like, and we’re family and kid friendly. We aim to create a welcoming and inclusive space. The book shop is named after the owner’s grandparents: Tubby & Coo, who grew up in the same neighborhood where the shop is located.
We also have a board game demo library of more than 300 games for customers to peruse. Come on in, choose a game from our gaming library, and play at our gaming tables!
Candice Huber (they/them) is a self proclaimed nerd/geek, and opening a book shop has fulfilled one of Candice’s lifelong dreams. Candice started reading at the age of two, earning the nickname “Johnny 5” after the Short Circuit robot who loved “input” any way he could get it. Besides books, Candice loves board games, Hamilton: The Musical, Star Wars, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Thundercats, He-Man, She-Ra, Jem and the Holograms (see the 80s cartoon trend here?), Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, musical theater, and Disney, among other geeky things. Candice also loves to write and tends to overachieve and get way too involved in things. Stop by, say hello, and ask for recommendations!
We will be at the store from 10:00AM to 4:00PM Monday through Saturday for porch pickup, to take orders and make recommendations, for virtual browsing appointments, and to answer phone calls, e-mails, and social media messages.
