August 31 - Elvis And The Finns

Published by Aviadoris was the 340-page hardcover Finnish book 'Elvis & Min√§ – Suomalaisten Tarinoita Kuninkaasta' (‘Elvis and Me - Finnish Stories of the King’) by Atte Varsta. 

Description: Is there anyone who has influenced more people with his music and life than Elvis Presley? He was a role-model almost from the first day he started to rise to fame and even after he died his status as a legendary performer kept on growing. 

Atte Varsta has been an Elvis fan since he was seven years old. He traveled around the United States in Elvis' footsteps, but Elvis had already passed away. Only a few people from Finland could say they had seen Elvis in person. Yet many would have liked to have that opportunity. 

In this book, Finns from Danny to Pate Mustaj√§rvi, from Frederik to Paleface, from Mikko Alatalo to Antti Rinte, from Erja Lyytinen to Aira Samulin and more than 100 other people share their own Elvis stories.
