Won’t You Be My Neighbor – PBS Documentary Film & Discussion
March 10 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
East Tennessee PBS & Independent Lens in partnership with the International Storytelling Center present an advanced screening of Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Fred Rogers. The documentary tells the story of a soft-spoken minister, puppeteer, writer and producer whose show was beamed daily into homes across America for more than 30 years. In his beloved television program, “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” Rogers and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues in a simple, direct fashion. There hadn’t been anything like Mister Rogers on television before, and there hasn’t been since.
Screening is free and open to the public.
