"Won't You Be My Neighbor," directed by Academy Award winner Morgan Neville, presents the heartwarming life of Fred Rogers, whose cherished PBS series used cardigans, puppets and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe to imaginatively and compassionately inspire children, while not shying away from complicated issues.
Ma is a writer, director, producer and consultant based in New York City. He is currently working on a documentary series on diplomacy. Previously, he worked for then-Senator John Kerry, overseeing his global economic portfolio on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
The Library brings people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community.
