Morrie Schwartz in Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom
AILING 78-year-old sociology professor Morrie Schwartz and his former student Mitch Albom reunite every Tuesday for 14 weeks in the memoir Tuesdays With
Morrie. Each Tuesday, Albom looks to Schwartz for his simple yet powerful life lessons.
He speaks about the things that matter most in life – the importance of chasing after your dreams, letting go of the past, forgiveness, family relationships, and more.
These Tuesday sessions feel intimate and precious. With Shwartz close to the end of his life, they are words to be savoured and remembered. Schwartz wasn’t just a father figure to author Albom. Having read Tuesdays
With Morrie on the cusp of adulthood, he was indirectly mine as well.
