Summary of The Professor
Albom continues Tuesdays with Morrie with a chapter about Morrie’s childhood. At the age of eight his mother died and he had to read the telegram to his father who could not read English. After his mother’s funeral he was sent to the Connecticut woods with his younger brother. After playing in the rain one evening they woke up and his brother had polio. He then had to wear braces on his legs so he could walk. The next year Morrie got a step-mother who loved him how his father did not. This new step-mother was a new light in Morrie’s life.
