My Friendship with Fred Rogers

September 22 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

My Friendship with Fred Rogers

Friends program at the Hershey Public Library is presented by Tim Madigan. Please register online at the Events Calendar at www.hersheylibrary.org or call the Circulation desk at 717-533-6555. It began as another newspaper assignment, a celebrity profile of the children’s television icon. But in Fred Rogers, Texas journalist Tim Madigan found more than a fascinating subject. From their first meeting in 1995, at Rogers’ invitation, the two became unlikely friends, a deep and abiding relationship that lasted until Rogers’ death in 2003. Madigan’s book, “I’m Proud of You” reveals Fred Rogers as a person who deserves a place among history’s greatest people. It chronicles male friendship at its finest and most powerful. And it is a book that has already brought hope and inspiration to many thousands of its readers. Books will be sold and signed at the event.
