Vick Mickunas' 1998 interview with Mitch Albom

23 years ago when Mitch Albom came through Dayton on a publicity tour his book "Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson" was becoming a massive best-seller. It had already sold a couple of hundred thousand copies by that point and the sales momentum was really becoming truly incredible. This inspirational book resonates with readers. It sells and sells and sells. By 2006 it had become the best-selling memoir of all time.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library, Clark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
