Award-winning author Mitch Albom's latest book, The First Phone Call from Heaven, will hit bookshelves in November but local fans will get a sneak peak....On July 2, The National Writers Series and The National Cherry Festival will welcome Albom back to Traverse City where he will appear on the stage of the City Opera House.
One of the country's most popular authors, Albom's latest novel is an allegory of the power of belief. It 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 a hoax? Who believes and who doesn't? Albom said in a statement that the new novel "is maybe my favorite story yet, a tale of belief, love and mystery." It is the first in a three-book deal he has with Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
