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.

    

  From the author of the acclaimed Island at the Center of the Earth comes Amsterdam: A History of the World's Most Liberal City; an endlessly entertaining portrait of the city of Amsterdam and the ideas that make it unique.

Weaving in his own experiences in his adopted home, Russell Shorto provides an ever-surprising, intellectually engaging story of Amsterdam from the building of its first canals in the 1300s, through its brutal struggle for independence, its golden age as a vast empire, to its complex present in which its cherished ideals of liberalism are under siege.

Russell Shorto is the bestselling author of Descartes' Bones and The Island at the Center of the World and will be at Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga on Saturday at 7PM.
