Eubanks is the Professional Education Division Herb Alpert Scholar in Residence at Berklee College of Music and Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
"W. Ralph Eubanks's book "A Place Like Mississippi" takes readers on a complete tour of the real and imagined landscapes that have inspired generations of authors. Eubanks is a native Mississippian who has spent time in all of the state’s 82 counties, and he knows its writers and its complicated history well. In "A Place Like Mississippi," Eubanks honors and explores this landscape, and this history, as he reveals the many ways it has informed the work of some of America’s most treasured authors. Supported by contemporary and historical photography, "A Place Like Mississippi" is a must-read for fans of Southern literature."
