Description

Famous authour Mitch Albom visits Philadelphia to talk about his new book, Finding Chika.

When Chika, a resident of the Haiti orphanage Albom established, is diagnosed with a brain tumor, Mitch and his wife Janine bring her to America for treatment. Chika becomes a permanent part of their household, and their lives, as they embark on a two-year, around-the-world journey to find a cure. The five-year-old Chika’s boundless optimism and humor teach the Alboms the joys of caring for a child, he learns that a relationship built on love, no matter what blows it takes, can never be lost.

Finding Chika, Albom’s newest book, is a celebration of a girl, her adoptive guardians, and the incredible bond they formed—a devastatingly beautiful portrait of what it means to be a family, regardless of how it is made. This is Albom at his most poignant and vulnerable.
