Presley & Capote: Musical and Literary Icons

Sunday 17th March, 2019

Mitchell Library, North Street, Glasgow G3 7DN 8:00-9:00pm

From the moment she first holds him, after his twin brother is stillborn, Gladys Presley loves her son Elvis ferociously. Graceland by Bethan Roberts is a heart-breaking portrait of a mother’s love and a son’s devotion. When Elvis buys his mansion, where he hopes his mother will be happy, the reality is very different, and Elvis finds that even kings must go on alone.

In the autumn of 1975, after two decades of intimate friendships, Truman Capote detonated a literary grenade, forever rupturing the elite circle he’d worked so hard to infiltrate. Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott’s Swan Song is the tragic story of the literary icon of his age.
