|ELVIS & HIS SECRET LETTERS TO HIS SPIRITUAL GUIDE
Elvis Presley’s secret letters to his spiritual guide collected in new book
We all know a lot about the public life of Elvis Presley, but how much do we know about his private thoughts?
Gary Lindberg of Chanhassen, co-founder of Calumet Editions publishing company and an award-winning filmmaker, gives insight into the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s innermost thoughts in
his new book “Letters from Elvis,” which he will launch at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, at Barnes & Noble, 3230 Galleria, Edina, followed by a reading at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, at Common
Good Books, 38 S. Snelling Ave., St. Paul.
“Letters From Elvis” is based on a collection of authenticated, handwritten letters Presley and his friends Harry Belafonte, Tom Jones and Marlon Brando secretly wrote to their
spiritual guide Carmen Monrez. Presley’s letters are from a time in his life when he seemed to be in decline. He writes of Hollywood crimes, suicide attempts and his overmedication.
Lindberg has known of these letters for close to 30 years, but only recently secured legal permission to release this book.
