Book Description

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Elvis Presley exploding onto the national scene, TODAY IN HISTORY: ELVIS gives fans of the King something to sing about every day of the year, including leap year. Each day of the calendar year features memorable and sometimes little-known Elvis history corresponding to that day, a quote du jour and a tantalizing tidbit of trivia from author and Elvis aficionado John Boertlein.

Who knew? • Elvis was the first celebrity to have his face on a credit card (January 19) • Kalamazoo, Michigan, is considered the Elvis-sighting capitol of the world (May 12) • Elvis was the first recording artist to go gold on advance record sales (July 20)

Despite the vast number of biographies, documentaries, memoirs and websites, what more can be said about Elvis that hasnt been said already? By stringing together these small pieces of Elvis through the years, TODAY IN HISTORY: ELVIS shines a light on the Kings very public persona as an entertainer, an actor, a singer, a ladies man and icon while it also presents the many hidden facets of the King that have been often overshadowed by his legendary excesses. (Elvis was a deeply spiritual man, a family man, a loyal friend, a generous and giving person, and an animal lover.) Through these bits of history, quotes from the King, his friends & family, admirers and colleagues and seemingly trivial facts, Boertlein paints a fully realized portrait of the man known the world over by just his first name: Elvis.
