About Margaret Littman
I tell the stories of the people and places of the American South: Nashville, Memphis, the Natchez Trace, Mississippi Delta, and beyond.
I am both a relative newcomer to the Volunteer State and an old-timer. An alumnae of Vanderbilt University, I left for points north over the course my writing career. But after 17 years I could no longer resist the siren song of the Parthenon, bluegrass music or fried pickles, and returned to Nashville.
I love to write about overlooked domestic destinations that should be explored and enjoyed: Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, and Arkansas. In addition to my paper-bound books, I am the author of many articles for magazines and websites. Read her work in Condé Nast Traveler, Rolling Stone Country, AARP, USA Today, and Fortune.
