Hi friends—Mitch Albom here—
I hope the new decade is off to a good start for all of you.
I spent the last few months of 2009 on a rigorous tour across the US, spreading the word about my new book, Have a Little Faith
. Most of it was spent living out of airports, hotel rooms, television studios, and bookstores—but it provided daily encounters with wonderful folks like you – and, at the risk of sounding corny, that’s what made it worthwhile. However, I see to have this recurring memory of dashing out of places in order to make a plane or an interview with people still wanting to talk or ask questions.
So, now that the tour is over, and I have returned to the basement where I write, I wanted to take some dedicated time to connect with you, my generous readers, who I may not have had a chance to meet on the road – or whom I had to leave too quickly. While I check in almost daily with MitchAlbom.com members, Facebook fans, and Twitter followers, I’ve decided to dive in a bit more here: The next three Tuesday afternoons, I’m hoping to “meet” with you online, one community at a time. And maybe some of those unanswered questions will get answered.
So….here we go. Please mark your calendars!
February 9 at 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (EST): A virtual tweet up on Twitter!
It’s a 140 character challenge, but submit your brief
questions, and I’ll try to respond as succinctly as possible! You must be registered on Twitter.com
and follow @MitchAlbom
I do hope that you’ll meet me in the literary ether. I can’t bring the coffee, but I’ll be there!
Looking forward to chatting/posting/tweeting with you soon. And thanks, as always, for your amazing and inspiring support of my work.
