42 - Trying to Get to You: The Reading Life of Elvis Presley (Revisited)

On this episode, we mark the passing of Elvis Presley by examining his life as a reader. Elvis notoriously struggled with his intense fame and used books to answer spiritual questions, provide medical knowledge, and a venue for reflection away from fans, family, and friends. Larry Gellar, Elvis’ spiritual advisor, shares the books that helped Elvis on his spiritual quest to understand why God made him “Elvis Presley.” Notably, although Elvis did not leave a diary, he did write in treasured books and we talk about his responses to his reading. Mary and producer Taylor discuss what Elvis read and why, with diversions into some of Elvis’ music and movies.
