Fifteen years ago, New York Times bestselling writer Mitch Albom published one of his most cherished books, the number one bestseller, The Five People You Meet in Heaven—which introduced the world to Eddie, a grizzled war veteran- turned-amusement park mechanic who died saving the life of a young girl named Annie. Now, in this long-awaited sequel, The Next Person You Meet In Heaven, Albom reveals Annie’s story. The result is an enchanting tale that reunites Eddie and Annie, and explores how our lives and losses intersect. Poignant and beautiful, filled with unexpected twists, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven reminds us that not only does every life matter, but that every ending is also a beginning—we only need to open our eyes to see it.

Mitch Albom is a bestselling author, screenwriter, playwright and nationally syndicated columnist. He is the author of six consecutive #1 New York Times bestsellers. Tuesdays with Morrie, which spent four straight years atop the New York Times list, is now the bestselling memoir of all time. Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, For One For One More Day, and Have a Little Faith have been made into award-winning television movies. Albom has founded nine charities in Detroit, including the first ever 24-hour medical clinic for homeless children in America. He also operates an orphanage in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, which he visits monthly. Albom lives with his wife, Janine, in suburban Detroit.
