Conversations on Elvis

Guests include: Mother Dolores Hart, who starred alongside Elvis in "Loving You" and "King Creole" and left Hollywood to enter a contemplative monastery; T.G. Sheppard, who formed a close personal and professional relationship with Elvis while promoting records for RCA - Elvis would later, as a token of their friendship, give T.G. his first tour bus; and representatives from Sony who will be talking about the new "Elvis at Stax" release and joined by bassist Norbert Putnam, who was part of the studio band for Elvis' December 1973 recording session at Stax.

An autograph session with special guests Mother Dolores Hart, T.G. Sheppard and Norbert Putnam will follow this event at the Elvis Week Main Stage. SOLD OUT.
