THE FIRST PHONE CALL FROM HEAVEN by MITCH ALBUM: A PREVIEW AND "QUICKIE" GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
THE FIRST PHONE CALL
FROM HEAVEN
BY MITCH ALBOM

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The First Phone Call from Heaven tells the story of a small town on Lake Michigan that gets worldwide attention when its citizens start receiving phone calls from the afterlife. Is it the greatest miracle ever or a massive hoax? Sully Harding, a grief-stricken single father, is determined to find out. An allegory about the power of belief—and a page-turner that will touch your soul—Albom's masterful storytelling has never been so moving and unexpected.

Readers of The Five People You Meet in Heaven will recognize the warmth and emotion so redolent of Albom's writing, and those who haven't yet enjoyed the power of his storytelling, will thrill at the discovery of one of the best-loved writers of our time. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Mitch Albom is a best-selling author, screenwriter, playwright and nationally-syndicated columnist. The author of five consecutive No.1 New York Times bestsellers, his books have collectively sold more than 33 million copies in forty-two languages worldwide. Tuesdays with Morrie, which spent four straight years atop the New York Times list, is now the bestselling memoir of all time.

Four of Albom's books, including Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, For One More Day and Have A Little Faith, have been made into highly acclaimed TV movies for ABC. Oprah Winfrey produced Tuesdays with Morrie, which claimed four Emmy awards including a best actor nod for Jack Lemmon in the lead role. Albom's most recent novel, The Time Keeper debuted at No. 1 on The New York Times list in September of 2012.

In collaboration with Jeffrey Hatcher, Albom adapted Tuesdays with Morrie into a hit play that opened off-Broadway in late 2002 and has since seen hundreds of versions produced across the US and Canada. As a columnist for The Detroit Free Press, Albom has won more than 200 writing awards, including the Red Smith Award for lifetime achievement in sports writing. Albom also hosts a daily radio program and is a frequent presence on ESPN.

Albom has founded six charities in and around Detroit, including the first ever 24-hour medical clinic for homeless children in America. He also operates an orphanage in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, dedicated to the safety, education and spiritual development of impoverished children who were victims of the 2010 earthquake.

Albom lives with his wife, Janine, in metropolitan Detroit.

Wow --- this is a GREAT for a "Quickie" giveaway. I've read Tuesday for Morrie and love the way that Albom brings together the characters in a very loving and spiritual manner. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

I enjoyed the seventh grader's email and questions for Mitch for his book report. The author answered very completely, and I bet the boy got an A on his report!
