SLCL Presents An Evening with Bestselling Novelist Mitch Albom

Saturday, November 6, 2021, 7pm CST
St. Louis County Library Headquarters

St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, and Left Bank Books present best selling author Mitch Albom, "The Stranger in the Lifeboat."


The beloved author of “Tuesdays with Morrie” and “Five People You Meet in Heaven,” Mitch Albom presents a profound new novel of hope and faith. Adrift in a raft after a deadly ship explosion, nine people struggle for survival at sea. Short on water, food, and hope, they spot a man floating in the waves. They pull him in. “Thank the Lord we found you,” a passenger says. “I am the Lord,” the man whispers. Albom keeps us guessing until the last pages: Is this strange and quiet man really who he claims to be? A fast-paced, compelling novel that makes you ponder your deepest beliefs, “The Stranger in the Lifeboat” suggests that answers to our prayers may be found where we least expect them.


Tickets go on sale October 8 and can be purchased through Eventbrite. Seating will be offered on a first come, first served basis. 

Face masks required for all event attendees. St. Louis County Library is mindful of all CDC guidelines and social distancing requirements. 
Albom will sign copies of the book following the presentation. Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, there will not be a photo opportunity.
