 Mitch Albom is a best-selling author, screenwriter, playwright and nationally-syndicated columnist. The author of five consecutive No.1 New York Times bestsellers, his books have collectively sold more than 33 million copies in forty-two languages worldwide. Tuesdays with Morrie, spent four straight years atop the New York Times list. Four of Albom’s books, including MorrieThe Five People You Meet in HeavenFor One More Day and Have A Little Faith, have been made into TV movies for ABC. Oprah Winfrey produced Tuesdays with Morrie, which claimed four Emmy awards including a best actor nod for Jack Lemmon in the lead role. Albom’s most recent novel is The Time Keeper.

In collaboration with Jeffrey Hatcher, Albom adapted Tuesdays with Morrie into a hit play that opened off-Broadway in late 2002 and has since seen hundreds of versions produced across the US and Canada. As a columnist for The Detroit Free Press, Albom has won more than 200 writing awards, including the Red Smith Award for lifetime achievement in sports writing. Albom also hosts a daily radio program and is a frequent presence on ESPN.  He has founded six charities in and around Detroit and also operates an orphanage in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, dedicated to the safety, education and spiritual development of impoverished children who were victims of the 2010 earthquake.

The First Phone Call from Heaven 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 the greatest miracle ever or a massive hoax? Sully Harding, a grief-stricken single father, is determined to find out.  The novel is equal parts mystery, love story, and an allegory about the power of belief.

 

Bradley Whitford‘s credits in film, television and theater include work with some of the most noted writers, directors and playwrights in the arts, and constitute a career worthy of a Juilliard-trained actor — which he is.  He starred in NBC’s  political drama, The West Wing. Whitford had a starring role in the television adaptation of Mitch Albom’s Have A Little Faith.

 

Some of Whitford’s most memorable performances include roles in such films as The Muse (1999) with Albert Brooks and Bicentennial Man (1999) with Robin Williams. He has also appeared in Scent of a Woman (1992), A Perfect World (1993), Philadelphia (1993), The Client (1994), My Life (1993/I), Red Corner (1997), Presumed Innocent (1990) and My Fellow Americans (1996).
