Join us for an IN-PERSON lunch & learn at the historical Pruyn House Barn with special guest ROSELLE KLINE CHARTOCK!
What’s the King of Rock and Roll’s Jewish connection?
ROSELLE KLINE CHARTOCK’S presentation will be on her newest book, The Jewish World of Elvis Presley (Signed copies will be available for purchase at the event). Through extensive research, she discovered that despite growing up in a fundamentalist Christian family in the South, Presley nevertheless developed an affinity to Jews. Hear stories about the legendary musician’s relationships with Jews in Memphis, including members of his inner circle and learn how Elvis’ Jewish world reflects his humanitarian and philosophical interests.
Roselle is a Professor Emerita of Education and has written books and scholarly articles on a variety of topics, including the Holocaust. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, Alan.
