Won’t You Be Mine?
Things have been pretty good in The Neighborhood.
A few weeks ago, Christofer and I just premiered a second “Mister Rogers & Me” trailer on You Tube, this one with sound bites from Tim Russert, Susan Stamberg, Marc Brown, and Linda Ellerbee. It’s not burning up the Internet, but’s it garnered a few comments, and won a few new eyeballs.
I’ve made fast friends with 826 NYC‘s publicist, Jen Snow, who’s excited to pitch in on Chris and my “Mister Rogers & Me” documentary. The non-profit youth literacy advocate’s big event, Revenge of the Bookeaters, is Sunday night. In the coming months, Chris and I expect to visit their Brooklyn headquarters, and interview founder David Eggers, and supporter Sarah Vowell.
But a reader, Kris Jensen-Van Heste, emailed me on Friday with some pretty bad news. Please visit “Making ‘Mister Rogers & Me'” for the full scoop, and how you can help.
