NOLA Children's Books

Steeped in New Orleans—just like a strong cup of coffee from Café Du Monde— NOLA Books author Cornell Landry and his work embody the city he has known and loved for 43 years. Born and raised just across the Mississippi River in what the locals call the Westbank, Cornell grew up in a family where he was surrounded by faith, tradition, and delicious food every single day.  Inspired by the city he adores, Landry's books refresh story time for parents and shape children's perception of this beloved city, a special place, full of tradition. Written and illustrated by locals.
