SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Best-selling author Mitch Albom gave the Savannah Book Festival's keynote address tonight to a sold out crowd at Trustees Theater.

Albom is the author of five number one New York Times best sellers and has sold more than 34 million copies of his books.

Tonight he discussed his latest book, "The First Phone Call From Heaven."

"There was a time when I never expected anyone to read anything that I wrote, and then to be asked to speak as a keynote speaker at a book festical is sort of like, you know, it almost hammers home to you, well maybe I am a writer now, so this is a big deal to me," said Albom.

WTOC's very own Cyreia Sandlin is hosting the event that runs through Sunday.
