Mitch Albom, author of “The Five People You Meet in Heaven” and “Tuesdays with Morrie,” spoke at Mason and was presented with the Fairfax Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Literary Arts on Sept. 25. This award recognizes an author whose works have made significant contributions to American and international culture and whose personal efforts have helped the wider community of writers, particularly younger writers. Albom’s appearance was part of the annual Fall for the Book festival ongoing at Mason through Sept. 28.
