LONG LIVE THE KING
The Shelter Island Library presents Richard Zoglin discussing his new book “Elvis in Vegas” during the next Friday Night Dialogue on Friday, Aug. 30, at 7 p.m. The conventional wisdom is that Las Vegas is what destroyed Elvis Presley, launching him on a downward spiral of drugs, boredom, erratic stage behavior and eventually his fatal overdose. But in Elvis in Vegas, Richard Zoglin takes an alternate view, arguing that Vegas is where the King of Rock and Roll resurrected his career, reinvented himself as a performer, and created the most exciting show in Vegas history.
