Margaret Littman (MSJ94)

For more than 200 years Memphis has captured America’s imagination. It is the home to the Blues and the center of the civil rights movement. It is called the Bluff City thanks to its location along the mighty Mississippi River, and today the river banks provide recreation, opportunity, and a connection to history, not to mention great views. This guidebook, authored by Tennessean Margaret Littman, delves into all Memphis has to offer, including, the best barbeque and hot wings, immersive museums, late-night dance spots, and, of course, all things Elvis. This inclusive, yet selective, guide features itineraries with side trips to Little Rock and Hot Springs, Ark., plus the Mississippi Blues Trail.
