King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center will welcome acclaimed photographer Ken Murphy and Oxford-based blues writer Scott Barretta this Friday, November 19th to share their new book Mississippi: State of Blues. The reading will take place at 5:30 p.m. with a signing/reception to follow.

Mississippi: State of Blues is the latest book from photographer Murphy, whose work was previously collected in the coffee table books Mississippi and My South Coast Home. The result of a three-year collaboration between Murphy and Barretta, the book offers an assessment in both image and prose of the way blues exists and persists in the in 21st century. It offers a refreshing new look at the world of Mississippi blues, capturing both traditional imagery and modern expressions of blues tourism via Murphy’s characteristically highly detailed and panoramic full color images.
