Elvis Will Not Be In The Building

We're sorry to announce that Elvis Persons, who was scheduled to come to Little Shop of Stories in July, has canceled his appearance.

Elvis' first full-length work of nonfiction, Footsteps, has been indefinitely delayed.  Push Press Publishing made the announcement this week.  It had been rumored that the manuscript, a biography of Elvis' father Rory Persons, was disorganized to the point of incoherence.

Novelist Rory Persons disappeared in 1967, about eight months before Elvis was born.

The author of award-winning short stories, Elvis Persons began researching his father's life four years ago.  He has reportedly traveled extensively, conducting taped interviews with some 200 people who knew Rory.

E-mails to Elvis Persons have not been returned.  I think it would be interested to bring Persons to Little Shop to discuss his research and his father's life.  We'll see what we can do.
