book cover Louisburg College has selected Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson, by Mitch Albom, for its common reading program. You and your Crossroads classmates will have a chance to explore and discuss the themes and issues related to the book in a variety of venues throughout the semester.

The book has been previously selected by Concordia University, SUNY-New Paltz, University of Buffalo, University of North Dakota, and University of Nevada, Las Vegas, among other colleges.

After learning of his former professor's terminal illness, author Mitch Albom flew to Brandeis University, reunited with his old friend, and returned every Tuesday thereafter to visit with him. Morrie Schwartz turned these visits into one final "class": a lesson in how to live. This book chronicles their time together.
