Hyperion announced today that they'll be publishing The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom on August 28. This is a "magical" new novel about Father Time that casts the fairy-tale figure in a new light: as the person who first attempted to track time. It's the first novel in six years from Albom, who originally struck literary gold in 1997 with Tuesdays with Morrie, a memoir about the death of his friend and mentor, teacher Morrie Schwartz.

"We are excited once again to share a new Mitch Albom book with his beloved fans and readers," said Hyperion President and Publisher Ellen Archer. "Mitch taps into an issue we all struggle with these days—our time and what we make of it. His novel will spark a lot of conversation about how we live our lives now—and what we can't afford to forget."

Albom's modern-day parables have moved millions and The Time Keeper isn't likely to be an exception. Will you look out for it?
