Tuesdays with Morrie, by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom, is a life affirming story about love and friendship. For Mitch Albom, Morrie Schwartz, a college professor he has known for 16 years, was his mentor. Morrie is now retired, loves life, adores his family and friends, and suffers from Lou Gehrig's disease. Mitch is now a sports writer who has an insatiable appetite for work and not much else...until he hears about his old professor's plight on Nightline. As Morrie succumbs to his disease, Mitch spends his Tuesdays with Morrie learning about life, love, community, work, family, forgiveness, and the meaning of death. Albom's autobiographical Tuesdays With Morrie has been on The New York Times best-seller list for seven years, and is now adapted for the stage.
