Happy Birthday Elvis Presley

Regarded as one of the most important figures of twentieth century popular culture, Elvis Presley was born, in a two-room shotgun house, built by his father on January 8, 1935. Known the world over by his first name, he starred in 33 successful films, globally; he has sold over one billion records, more than any other artist. Look for the life-size Jailhouse Elvis in the library. That’s where you will find films, television appearances and some acclaimed record-breaking concert performances on video. Also some books about the life and times of Elvis Aaron Presley including the new “Elvis Speaks” his thoughts on fame, family, music and more in his own words.
