The Conundrum Books & Puzzles

The Conundrum is a charming independent bookstore in historic downtown St. Francisville, Louisiana.  At The Conundrum we focus on book and author events to involve the community in literary fun and adventures. Some recent events included book signings, readings by authors, book clubs, Children's Story Time and craft events, as well as readers' socials where we got together and discussed the books we have recently read so that we can recommend them (or not) to others in the group.

All events are open to the public and everyone, young and old, is encouraged to participate regardless of their particular reading interest. 

You can learn more about our shop at or on Facebook at .

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

The Conundrum is owned by Missy & Rob Couhig. Rob grew up in the St. Francisville area where his family lived in and ran Asphodel Plantation Inn & Restaurant. Missy is a native of New Orleans. The couple bought a residence in St. Francisville in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and have continued to spend more and more time in the area culminating in opening this bookshop in late 2015.

Pet Friendly Notes

The Conundrum has a couple of bookstore dogs, Buster and Jackson, that are often in residence and serve as the official greeters as you enter the shop.
