The Good Neighbor by Maxwell King
Fred Rogers was an enormously influential figure in the history of television and in the lives of tens of millions of children. As the creator and star of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, he was a champion of compassion, equality, and kindness; he was fiercely devoted to children and to taking their fears, concerns, and questions about the world seriously. Maxwell King traces his personal, professional and artistic life through decades of work. It is the definitive portrait of a beloved figure, cherished by multiple generations. This will be held at Avenue Flower Shop & Wine Bar, 10632 S. Cicero Ave.
