Author of Tuesdays With Morrie, philanthropist, columnist, and sports reporter Mitch Albom is an inspiration around the world. His books have sold over 35 million copies and have been translated into over 40 languages.

His breakthrough book, Tuesdays with Morrie, became an international phenomenon with over 14 million copies sold. It remains one of the top selling memoirs of all time. The book was adapted into an Emmy Award-winning TV movie produced by Oprah Winfrey, starring Jack Lemmon and Hank Azaria.
Albom has founded 10 charities, including nine in the Detroit area, such as S.A.Y. Detroit, which operates a family health clinic; A Time to Help, a volunteer organization; and A Hole in the Roof Foundation, which repairs faith-based homeless shelters. He also directs the Have Faith Haiti Mission in Port Au Prince, which helps impoverished children and orphans.

A columnist for The Detroit Free Press since 1985 and a panelist on ESPN's The Sports Reporters, Albom has been named the #1 Sports Columnist in the Nation by the Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE) 13 times. In June 2010 he received the APSE Red Smith Award for lifetime achievement, the biggest prize in sports journalism, and in June 2013, he was inducted into the Sportswriters Hall of Fame.
Albom's 2014 book, The First Phone Call from Heaven, is a #1 New York Times bestseller. In its starred review, Publisher's Weekly called the book "a brisk, page-turner of a story...another winner from Albom.”
His #1 New York Times bestseller, Have A Little Faith, begins with an unusual request when his rabbi asks him to deliver his eulogy. An 8-year journey, Albom's story is about how community and faith pull people together and the potential in all of us for a giving, meaningful life.

Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven debuted at #1 on The New York Times bestseller list and sold nearly five million copies in its first year. He wrote the screenplay for the ABC TV movie starring Jon Voight and Ellen Burstyn.

Mitch Albom hosts two radio shows on WJR-AM. He has appeared on The Today Show and Charlie Rose, and his articles have been featured in The New York Times, GQ and Sports Illustrated. Currently, he is developing an hour-long TV show for TNT.
His latest book, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto, debuted at #4 on The New York Times best sellers list.

Giving is Living: From Tuesdays with Morrie to Haiti
Finding Your Magic Strings: How Everyone Has a Talent that Can Make a Difference

Everyone has a talent. We just need to find it. Mitch Albom explores this theme with a moving presentation that follows his lifelong love and pursuit of music. Albom takes listeners on a journey from the old piano that arrived when he was eight years old to his adventures as a teenaged musician, a lounge singer in Greece, and a failed songwriter in New York City, which ultimately led him to writing.

Through storytelling, piano playing, and even some singing, Albom shows audiences how a passion for one gift can often lead to discovery of another, truer one. In Finding Your Magic Strings, Mitch Albom helps you discover yours.

From the biggest names in sports to the dangers of fandom, Mitch Albom takes audiences through his 35 years of covering sports. He explores the money, corruption, racial tensions, as well as the pride, thrills, and excitement of the games that have shaped our nation. Sports is a metaphor for everything you face in life, and in this talk, Albom explains why it’s something we’ll never outgrow.

In less than a minute, everything and everyone you know, love, and rely on could be gone. A nightmare for some, but for the people of Haiti in 2010, this became a reality. In 30 seconds, 3% of Haiti’s population was gone and one million were left homeless in the wake of a devastating earthquake.
Like many others, Mitch Albom watched the news in horror. With a catastrophe so massive, what could he do? Following a story about The Caring and Sharing Mission, he boarded a small plane for Port au Prince to see how he could help. One trip became monthly excursions to the mission, helping rebuild a nurturing home for children who did not have one.
“Unexpected Grace: The Have Faith Haiti Mission” takes audiences into a world that is being reborn. Mitch Albom shares the stories of the orphans he takes in and tells their tale of resilience, their budding love of education and faith, and how they learned to love, trust, and laugh again, despite it all. Ultimately, this talk is about how these amazing survivors have taught a man, who had no kids of his own, that nothing is more important than saving a young life.

Detroit, once considered the backbone of America, is now considered one of the worst major cities in the country. But we should never discount the underdog. The Motor City has had its troubles — poverty, unemployment, the collapse of the auto industry, and the explosive racial climate — but in this talk, Mitch Albom will introduce your audience to the new Detroit, one built on Midwestern grit and a shared sense of survival. Despite it all, Detroit has thrived. Mitch Albom is here to tell you how.

Mitch Albom talks about why faith is still needed and embraced in a modern world where we think we know all the answers. Rather than divide us, Albom found — through time spent with an inner-city pastor of a poor church and an aging rabbi of a wealthy suburban synagogue — that faith can pull us together. That it unites us in our humanity. Albom shares stories about faith amongst the poor, the well-to-do, the homeless, and those who once felt God did not exist. He addresses questions such as: What do we all have in common in our hearts — no matter what house of worship we attend? How does the belief in something bigger than us give us insight, wisdom and comfort? How does faith help when bad things happen? And what can we learn from each others’ faith that can make the world, the workplace, our neighborhoods and our daily lives more harmonious? Expanding on themes already developed in his works Tuesdays With Morrie and The Five People You Meet In Heaven, Mitch Albom weaves a captivating and uplifting message about the potential in all of us for a giving, meaningful life.
