The book tour for Finding Chika continues with events starting in January through the spring, primarily consisting of ticketed fundraisers that include a signed hardcover copy of the book.
Internationally renowned best-selling author, columnist, radio host, and philanthropist, Mitch Albom is an inspiration around the world. His books, including the New York Times bestselling Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet In Heaven, have sold over 39 million copies and have been translated into over 45 languages. Join fellow international bestselling author and founder of the Palm Beach Book Festival, Lois Cahall, in an intimate conversation with Mitch about a series of life-changing events that lead to the writing of his newest and most personal release, Finding Chicka: A Little Girl, an Earthquake, and the Making of a Family. Finding Chicka marks Mitch’s return to nonfiction for the first time in more than a decade as a memoir that celebrates Chika, a courageous young Haitian orphan whose life would forever change his heart.
Author, philanthropist, columnist, and sports reporter Mitch Albom is coming to Scranton for a speaking event and book signing for Finding Chika.
This special event is presented by Hospice of the Sacred Heart, a not-for-profit, free standing hospice program serving Northeastern Pennsylvania since 2004. To date, Hospice has provided care to over 14,000 patients.
“We invited Mitch to speak to a large group of Hospice of the Sacred Heart employees, volunteers and community members in 2005. We’re delighted to bring him back this year and look forward to his fresh and inspiring presentation,” said Diane Baldi, CEO, Hospice of the Sacred Heart.
