About This Episode

In August of 1995, Mitch Albom approached his literary agent about an idea he had for a book. Mitch’s agent asked him to put his thoughts down in the form of a letter to the agent, and he would, in turn, share the letter with publishers who might be interested in the story. While going through notes recently, Mitch ran across that letter. A letter he hadn’t seen for nearly 30 years. And until today, that letter has never been read or shared widely with anyone other than the publishers upon whose desks it landed. The Pitch: Tuesdays with Morrie. The outcome? You all know how that story ends. Tune in to today’s Tuesday People episode to hear the very beginning of this beautiful tale.
