Event Details

Fred Rogers was much more than one of the seminal figures in the development of television in America in the 20th century. He was also a leading educator who worked to advance the development of early childhood education in the U.S., and was part of a cohort of educators and academics who completely changed the face of American teaching in the second half of the century. Because of his skilled use of television, Fred spread a powerful message of love, kindness and understanding to millions of children, parents and teachers throughout the country, making himself an icon for the value of kindness. He continues — 20 years after his death — to be a major influence in video, on the internet and on social media. Maxwell King, author of The Good Neighbor, tells some of the most compelling stories from Fred’s life and work and explains his profound influence on society. (ages 18+)
