mitch albom

  Mitch Albom is a screenwriter, playwright, nationally syndicated columnist and the author of six consecutive number one New York Times bestsellers, including Tuesdays with Morrie.

In his latest novel, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto, he tells the story of the greatest guitar player to ever walk the earth. Born in a burning church, abandoned as an infant, and raised by a blind music teacher in a small Spanish town, Frankie is sent to America at age nine -- his only possession an old guitar and six strings -- each of which will change a life.

Mitch Albom has carved out a special place among contemporary authors with New York Times best sellers such as Tuesday with Morrie, and Five People You Meet in Heaven.

The humanism and the gift of story telling is on full display in his new novel called, The First Phone Call From Heaven. It is the story of a small Midwestern town whose residents begin to get phone calls from the departed. It is a compelling novel with equal parts mystery, love story, and an allegory about the power of hope and belief.

Mitch Albom will be joining Joe Donahue on stage in Saratoga Springs this Friday night in a Northshire book store event at 7pm. For more information visit Northshire’s website.
