About this event

Join us for a special Q&A with Fred Rogers’ real-life colleagues. What was he like when he wasn't on camera? How did he make Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood into the beloved program it became? And what can parents, educators, and everyone else learn from Fred Rogers today?

In a virtual session moderated by Gregg Behr and Ryan Rydzewski, authors of When You Wonder, You’re Learning: Mister Rogers’ Enduring Lessons for Raising Creative, Curious, Caring Kids, we’ll discuss Fred Rogers’ legacy and invite questions from the audience. We’ll talk with Bill Isler; the former president and CEO of Fred Rogers Productions; Hedda Sharapan, who helped produce the Neighborhood for more than three decades; and Aisha White, who helped Rogers bring the lessons from the Neighborhood into classrooms and schools.

This conversation is designed for parents, caregivers, educators and community leaders. To RSVP for this free event, click here.
