Mitch Albom

Johanna Lawshea

Mitch Albom is the author of six consecutive number-one New York Times bestsellers and has sold more than thirty-four million copies of his books in forty-two languages worldwide. Tuesdays with Morrie, which spent four years atop the New York Times list, is the bestselling memoir of all time. Albom has founded seven charities, including the first-ever full-time medical clinic for homeless children in America. He also operates an orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. His latest novel, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto (Harper), tells the epic story of the greatest guitar player to ever live, and the six lives he changed with his magical blue strings.
