Author Visit with Chris Rodell
Growing Up in the REAL Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood: Life Lessons from the Heart of Latrobe, Pennsylvania

When: Monday, November 18, 2019 - 6:30 p.m.

The story of America’s favorite neighbor is being told in a movie starring America’s favorite actor. Yes, Tom Hanks will play Fred Rogers in, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” set for a Nov. 22. And now the local author who wrote about his oddball friendship with neighbor Arnold Palmer is back with another endearing volume about life in the Real Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Yes, Chris Rodell and iUniverse are in October releasing "Growing Up in the REAL Mister Rogers' Neighborhood: Life Lessons from the Heart of Latrobe, Pennsylvania.” Part history, part biography, the book is a freewheeling conversation about what makes this one small town so special. One big reason is Rogers, a man visionary educators are beginning to equate with spiritual leaders like Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. It tells the stories of couples he married, souls he saved and if calling him “Christ-like” is blasphemous or accurate. It has previously untold stories of Rogers being a life-saving superhero and of him being perfectly human. In a world that cries out for civility and healing, it’s the only book about Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood by an author who actually lives there.
