We are very sad to announce the passing of Michael Murphy, Co-Author of 111 Places In New Orleans That You Must Not Miss, on October 19, 2017. Our heartfelt condolences to out to his family, his friends, and his colleagues around the world.
MIchael wrote in the introduction to this book, "Unlike most urban hubs, New Orleans is less about consumption and more about experiences. You need to jump in and participate." It seems as though Michael made a habit of following this excellent advice.
