Fred Rogers

The Last Interview



Fred Rogers’s gentle spirit and passion for children’s television takes center stage in this collection of interviews spanning his nearly forty-year career

Nearly twenty years after his death, Fred Rogers remains a source of comfort and fond memories for generations who grew up watching Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Over the course of his career, Rogers revolutionized children’s television and changed the way experts thought about the educational power of media. But perhaps his most lasting legacy was demonstrating the power of simply being nice to other people. In this collection of interviews including his firey (for him) 1969 senate testimony that saved PBS and his final interview with Diane Rehm, Rogers’s gentle spirit and compassionate approach to life continues to be an inspiration.
