Mitch Albom’s new book, The Time Keeper, has been added to his New York Times Best Seller legacy. Albom has had five previous books on the hardcover fiction and non-fiction lists, including two books, Tuesdays With Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven that have spent more than 100 weeks on the lists. Be inspired at the Mayerson JCC on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 4 p.m. as Albom shares insights about his life, lessons learned and his new book. Each ticket includes a copy of The Time Keeper.
Albom is known not only for being a great writer, but also for being a great speaker. In a recent appearance at East Stroudburg University, their spokesperson said, “Mitch Albom was an incredible speaker who had the audience on an emotional roller coaster from tears to laughter to silent contemplation. The standing ovation he received gave testimony to his impact on the audience.” The exclusive event at the J is one of only 10 in the United States. After speaking, there will be an opportunity to meet Albom and have a copy of The Time Keeper signed.
The Time Keeper is Albom’s newest work of fiction, a story told about the inventor of the world’s first clock who is punished for trying to measure God’s greatest gift. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more days, more years. Eventually, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time. Told in Albom’s signature, evocative prose, this remarkably original and compelling tale is inspiring readers all over the country.
This event is presented by the Wolf Center for Arts & Ideas, the Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati and The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. /U.S. Bank Foundation.
