Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays with Morrie is a touching tale of the relationship between an elderly professor and his former student. Having not seen each other in many years, their lives intersect once again as Morrie Schwartz begins to suffer from Lou Gehrig’s Disease. In order to spend what time he has left with his mentor, Mitch visits him every Tuesday for dinner and conversation. What follows is a journey exploring the question of what it means to truly live – and how those who are dying can help us do just that. This 20th anniversary edition includes new material from Mitchell Albom, including reflections on how dramatically our world has changed since the book was first published in 1997. It also features never-before-seen photographs of Morrie Schwartz taken by Mitch Albom over the course of their sixteen weekly dinners together.
