    Yes. From my local library:

    Finally available in paperback--the first runaway #1 bestseller and modern inspirational classic by the bestselling author of "The Five People You Meet in Heaven." Albom tells the story of his reconnection with his college professor and mentor, Morrie Schwartz, and their visits in the months prior to Morrie's death. Distributed by Syndetic Solutions, Inc.

    Also about the movie:

    This made-for-TV movie tells the story of an old man, professor of sociology, Morrie Schwartz, who is dying from ALS. He tells a former student, Mitch Albom, about dying, living and what's important in life.

    Some libraries do have it in the fiction section, but most have it in either non-fiction or biography section.

    No. It is a true story based on a man's experiences with an old teacher, Dr. Morrie, who helped him through school. When he loses touch with him after several years, he ends up going back to visit the ailing Morrie, who shows him that living life is more important than all the junk that goes with it...very sentimental, good book.

    Yes. Tuesdays with Morrie is written by Mitch Albom. He is a Sports Analyst and obviously... a writer! :) It's a retelling of his real life account with Morrie. I didn't believe it when I first heard it was nonfiction. My teacher in school had to convince me so! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
