The magazine previews Albom's November 13 Timothy and Sharon Ubben Lecture at DePauw in its "Great Things to Do This Month" feature and includes the color photo you see at the top of this article.

"On Nov. 13, Albom will turn his honest eye inward while discussing his latest work, For One More Day, poignantly dealing with painful familial issues of divorce, loss and regret," adds the publication in an item headlined "Monday with Mitch." The new book remains #1 on the New York Times's bestseller list.

Mitch Albom's 7:30 p.m. Ubben Lecture, "For One More Day: Appreciating the People and Moments We Have Right Now," is free and open to the public. After the speech, Albom will sign copies of the new book that are purchased at Kresge Mitch Albom Day.jpgAuditorium or from the DePauw Bookstore (receipt required).
