I’m Proud Of You

June 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The true story of a life-altering friendship between Tim Madigan, an “anonymous guy who wrote stories for a newspaper in Texas,” and Fred Rogers, the icon of children’s television and one of the history’s most beloved celebrities.
“You know him, at least if you are of a certain age, as Mister Rogers, the icon of children’s television, America’s secular saint, loving and gentle, wise and compassionate. I knew him as my friend, Fred… I considered him to be one of my closest friends. In fact, it’s no exaggeration to say that if it were not for Fred Rogers, I might not be around today, alive to tell you my story…”
Tim Madigan invites us into his memories and friendship with a man who shaped more than a generation—simply with his kindness.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Lake Region Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.
