ABOUT US

WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR BROWSING IN STORE DUE TO COVID-19, BUT WE'RE STILL OPERATING. AND WE'VE RELOCATED!

Get directions to our new location on 432 N. Anthony St. here. We are offering porch pickup for any order. We can ship to you as well; our shipping costs depend on the order. You can also shop online and get items shipped directly to you from our warehouse. The best way to support us is to toss a coin into our virtual tip jar or to purchase a gift card.

ABOUT THE STORE

Tubby & Coo’s is a local, independent, 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!

Our motto: “It’s all Geek to me!” For more information, visit our FAQ and Used Book Buying Policy pages.

 

ABOUT THE OWNER

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 MusicalStar WarsSupernaturalDoctor Who, ThundercatsHe-ManShe-RaJem and the Holograms (see the 80s cartoon trend here?), Harry PotterGame 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!
