New York Times bestselling author Mitch Albom will discuss his latest novel at Southern Connecticut State University as part of WSHU Public Radio’s “Join the Conversation” series on Wednesday, November 13 at 7:30pm. The talk/booksigning will be held at the John Lyman Center for the Performing Arts in New Haven.
The First Phone Call From Heaven tells the story of a small town on Lake Michigan that gets worldwide attention when its citizens start receiving phone calls from people in the afterlife. Is it a miracle or hoax? Sully Harding, a grief-stricken single father, is determined to find out. A masterful storyteller at the height of his powers, Albom’s The First Phone Call From Heaven is his most thrilling and magical novel yet—a page-turning mystery and a meditation on the power of faith, love and the human connection.
Albom’s books have sold 33 million copies; have been published in 42 different languages worldwide; and have been made into Emmy Award-winning and critically-acclaimed TV movies. His memoir, Tuesdays with Morrie, spent four straight years atop The New York Times list. An internationally renowned author, journalist, screenwriter, playwright, and broadcaster, Albom is also an ardent philanthropist who has founded six charities, including an orphanage in Port Au Prince, Haiti. His honors include being named National Hospice Organization Man of the Year, the Red Smith Award for lifetime achievement in sportswriting, and a recent induction into the Sportswriters Hall of Fame. Albom lives with his wife, Janine in Detroit.
