Indie Lens Pop-Up presents Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Meeting Room 302
04/18/2019 - 6:30pm to 8:45pm

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom) looks back on the legacy of Fred Rogers, focusing on his radically kind ideas. While the nation changed around him, Fred Rogers stood firm in his beliefs about the importance of protecting childhood.

Please stay after the film for a discussion with Community Engagement Librarian Abigail Ryan, and Joanne Cantor, author and Professor Emerita of Communication Arts at UW.
