Posted: Updated:

The author behind acclaimed books "Tuesdays with Morrie" and "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" sat down in Traverse City to talk about his latest work.

Mitch Albom was the guest at tonight's National Writer's Series.

The audience was the first in the world to hear an excerpt from his new book, "The First Phone Call From Heaven."

Albom says tonight was the perfect night to share part of his new book, since it is set in northern Michigan.

He also says because he is a Michigan native, it gives the event even greater meaning.
