The Book - Tupelo’s Own Elvis Presley

Elvis triumphantly returns to Tupelo like a tornado in 1956 for a welcome reception bigger than that of President Franklin Roosevelt’s visit to the city in 1934. The book is written by Tupelo ’s own Roy Turner, Elvis/ Tupelo historian.

See the hundreds of photographs of Elvis both on stage and backstage from the Tupelo events of 1956 and 1957. Included are many unpublished photographs, ticket stubs, newspaper articles and the first known Elvis signature, all seen here FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER! Available for a short time only.
