Author, columnist, and radio host
Author of Tuesdays With Morrie, philanthropist, columnist, and sports reporter Mitch Albom is an inspiration around the world. His books have sold over 39 million copies and have been translated into 45 languages. While nationally recognized for his sports writing, Albom is perhaps best known for the themes of hope and kindness woven through his books, plays, and films. He is the author of eight bestselling books, with five debuting at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller List, including The First Phone Call from Heaven; Have A Little Faith; The Five People You Meet in Heaven, and its sequel, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven. Albom’s next work, Chika: A Little Girl, an Earthquake, and the Making of a Family, is the true story of Chika, a young Haitian orphan whose short life would forever change Albom’s heart. In his presentation, "Why Every Life Matters," he will speak about how we are all connected and we all have influence, so it is our responsibility to do whatever we can — wherever we are to make the world a better place.
