Laurelwood Shopping Center says
Elvis Presley’s private nurse, Letetia Kirk, unveils her personal stories of what life was like while tending to the King of Rock and Roll.

About the book:
For 38 years, Letetia Henley Kirk kept silent about her years with Elvis Presley. She lived on the grounds at Graceland, Elvis’ home, with her husband and two young daughters from 1972 until 1983 and often traveled with Elvis on tour. The book is a collection of short stories about her life around Elvis and his family and includes dozens of previously unpublished photos. “He was not only my patient but a good friend,” said Kirk, who is 73. “That’s why I didn’t want to write a book all these years. I felt like he wouldn’t have written a book about me if it had been the other way around.” She changed her mind after a friend convinced her to attend an event during Elvis Week last August in Memphis.

About the author:
The former Letetia Edwards grew up in the Dixie community of Obion County, about eight miles west of Union City and eight miles east of Reelfoot Lake. She graduated from Dixie High School in 1960 and attended St. Joseph School of Nursing in Memphis, earning her degree in 1963. She became his regular nurse when Elvis came to the clinic, and that led to her move to Graceland in 1972.
