Mitch Albom

Mitch Albom is a best-selling author, a nationally acclaimed newspaper columnist (with the "Detroit Free Press"), a radio host (with WJR-AM), and a television commentator (with ESPN and ABC). His well-known book “Tuesdays With Morrie” is now the best-selling memoir of all time, with nearly ten million copies sold worldwide. Albom, along with playwright Jeffrey Hatcher, adapted the book into a hit play, which opened Off-Broadway in late 2002 and has been performed in regional theaters throughout North America. Albom’s first novel, “The Five People You Meet in Heaven,” was published in 2003 and was on the “New York Times” best-sellers list for two years. With a screenplay by Albom, “Five People” was adapted into an ABC movie that aired in December 2004 and starred Jon Voight, Ellen Burstyn, and Jeff Daniels. Albom has founded three charities in Detroit: “The Dream Fund,” “A Time To Help,” and “S.A.Y. Detroit,” which helps Detroit’s homeless. He serves on numerous charitable boards around the country and makes his home in suburban Detroit.
