Author Mitch Albom might be America's favorite storyteller. While most books spend only weeks on the bestsellers list, Albom's memoir Tuesdays with Morrie spent four years at the top of the charts. Now this writer of five consecutive No. 1 New York Times bestsellers comes to Santa Monica's The Ann and Jerry Moss Theatre to discuss his latest work The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto. Albom's magical new novel follows young Frankie Presto, a war-orphaned boy raised by a blind music teacher. Blessed with prolific instrumental skills and the power to change lives, Frankie travels to America with nothing but his old six-string guitar. And in true Forrest Gump-like fashion, Frankie finds himself on an epic journey through the musical landscape of the 20th-century. This page-turning tale about a legendary guitarist is sure to join Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven, For One More Day and Have A Little Faith as another classic of popular literature.
