Meet bestselling author and nationally syndicated columnist Mitch Albom as he signs his newly released novel, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto. Mr. Albom has authored six consecutive number one New York Times bestsellers including Tuesdays with Morrie, the best-selling memoir of all time.
Available for purchase in the Museum Shop, the book is unlike anything he has written before. It's an epic story of a fictional icon—the greatest guitar player to ever walk the earth—and the six lives he changed with six magical blue strings. A lifelong musician, Mitch Albom's passion for the subject shines through on every page and is infused with the thematic message that "everyone joins a band in this life" and those connections have the power to change us all.
