Tuesdays with Morrie
by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom
based on the book by Mitch Albom

December 17, 2018 at 7 PM

TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is the autobiographical story of Mitch Albom, an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor. Sixteen years after graduation, Mitch happens to catch Morrie's appearance on a television news program and learns that his old professor is battling Lou Gehrig's Disease. Mitch is reunited with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life.

"A touching, life-affirming, deeply emotional drama with a generous dose of humor."
