Rabbi Barbara Symons of Temple David will discuss two novels by Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven and the sequel The Next Person you meet in Heaven. The Five People introduces Eddie, a war veteran who turns amusement park mechanic, who dies saving a young girl Annie from a tragic accident. He felt his life was meaningless on earth but learns from five people in heaven that every life matters. In the sequel Annie is reunited with Edie, one of the five people who show her how her earthly life touched others. The discussion will be on September 19, at 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. and again from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the gallery space in the Monroeville Public Library. The event is free and open to the public.
