The Empowerment Zone will be discussing Tuesdays With Morrie: an old man, a young man, and life's greatest lesson DB44849. This book is also available on Bookshare.
He wasn't a superstar athlete, a successful entrepreneur or a famous actor. He was not a household name. His only claim to fame was an appearance on Nightline. But ask anyone who knew him and they'll likely tell you that Morrie Schwartz made more of an impression on them than Michael Jordan, Bill Gates and Jodie Foster combined.
TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is the autobiographical story of Mitch Albom, an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor. Sixteen years after graduation, Mitch happens to catch Morrie's appearance on a television news program and learns that his old professor is battling Lou Gehrig's Disease. Mitch is reunited with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life.
Tuesdays with Morrie is more than just a dying mans last words. It is an inspirational recount of a mans life a man whose passion for the human spirit has continued to live long after his last breath.
Come join us on Sunday March 17 2013 in the book now room of www.accessibleworld.org as we discuss this wonderful book.
