“One Book, One Springfield” (Springfield, MA)


After seeing his former professor Morrie Schwartz being interviewed on television, and there learning of his terminal illness, Mitch Albom flew to Brandeis University and returned every Tuesday to visit his mentor after a long silence. Tuesdays with Morrie is Albom's chronicle of these visits, and of conversations in which he gained the wisdom to view life as something different than the accretion of fame, money and success.

"[The book] is required reading for the students in my Death and Dying class...It was extremely well received. Many said they resented the assignment, but once they sat down with the book, they couldn't put it down. It is moving and enlightening."
—Prof. Marilynn Jackson, Howard Payne University, Brownwood, TX

“I have recommended this warm and poignant remembrance to my social work students, but anyone’s human experience would be enriched through meeting Morrie and Mitch. As contemporary life grows daily more frenetic and soulless, Morrie’s end-of-life observations gain in urgency and relevance.” —Prof. Douglas MacDonald, M.S.W., Syracuse University School of Social Work

"The 200+ students in this course {Leisure in Contemporary Society} seem to really enjoy this book—in my 27 years of teaching at the University level I have never experienced such positive student response to a book I required!"—Professor Richard D. MacNeil, Leisure Studies, University of Iowa

“[Tuesday’s with Morrie] allows my students the opportunity to experience the affective component of death. Morrie shares all of his feelings and thoughts about his impending death, so that we may better understand the final task facing us all.”
--Dr. Lisa Schneiter, Psychology, Jefferson Community College
