Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom

Isabella Santoro, Journalist

Tuesdays With Morrie

This is truly a remarkable memoir about a truly remarkable man named Morrie Schwartz who was not afraid to die, even embraced death like an old friend. Mitch Albom does a wonderful job weaving the story of a man facing a heartbreaking disease called ALS. Mitch writes about a series of visits he made to his former sociology professor on Tuesdays every week before he died. Morrie and Mitch shared a beautiful connection. It was almost as if they were father and son, the pair. Morrie talks to Mitch about lessons in life that many people struggle with and how for Morrie it is easy to stay positive in the face of adversity.
