What is tuesday with morrie all about
Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch AlbomMaybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.
Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded. Wouldnt you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you?
Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older mans life. Knowing he was dying of ALS - or motor neurone disease - Mitch visited Morrie in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final class: lessons in how to live.

About VOX ATL
Morrie would walk that final bridge between life and death, and narrate the trip. In the late 70s when Mitch attended Brandeis University, he took a liking to his energetic sociology professor, Morrie Schwartz. He took every class Morrie taught, and soon the two became great friends. Every Tuesday they met and talked about life and everything in between until Morrie graduates and becomes fully immersed in a world full of vanity. However, nearly 20 years later, now an award-winning sportswriter, Mitch finds out that his old professor and friend was dying after seeing a Nightline episode that featured his old mentor. Soon Mitch started visiting Morrie every Tuesday again, just as they used to back in college. Mitch calls his weekly visits to his teacher his last class, and the present book a paper about the meaning of life.
