Mitch Albom is an internationally renowned and best-selling author, journalist, screenwriter, playwright, radio and television broadcaster. His latest book is "The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto."
"Tuesdays with Morrie" is the chronicle of Mitch’s time spent with his beloved professor. As a labor of love, Mitch wrote the book to help pay Morrie’s medical bills. It spent four years on the New York Times best-seller list and is now the most successful memoir ever published.
His first novel, "The Five People You Meet in Heaven," is the most successful US hardcover first adult novel ever. In October 2006, "For One More Day" was the first book chosen by Starbucks in the newly launched Book Break Program, which also helped fight illiteracy by donating one dollar from every book sold to Jumpstart. "Have a Little Faith," was released in September 2009 and selected by Oprah.com as the best nonfiction book of 2009. His recent titles, "The Time Keeper" and "The First Phone Call from Heaven," both debuted at number one on the New York Times best-seller list.
Part love story, part magical mystery, "The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto" is Mitch Albom at his finest, a "Forrest Gump"-like epic about one man's journey to discover what truly matters and the power of talent to change our lives.
His books have collectively sold more than 35 million copies in 42 languages. He has founded eight charities in Detroit and operates an orphanage in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. He lives with his wife, Janine, in Michigan.
