Carnegie Library of McKeesport will host “Mister Rogers and Philosophy: Wondering Through the Neighborhood” at 6 p.m. Friday (March 13), a spokeswoman said.
Panelists will include Holly Mohr, director of religious education, St. Mary of the Mount Catholic Church; Eric Mohr, philosophy professor at St. Vincent College; Sara Lindley, English professor at St. Vincent College; and Matthew Ussia, English professor at Duquesne University.
The panel will discuss the recent book “Mister Rogers and Philosophy,” edited by the Mohrs, which compares well-known elements in Rogers’ TV show with philosophical concepts presented by Plato, Socrates, Aristotle and Karl Marx.
The book collects two dozen essays, each named for one of Rogers’ songs, about wonder, anger, solving problems, imagination, friendship, and other topics.
The event is free and open to everyone, the spokeswoman said, but pre-registration is requested. The library is located at 1507 Library Ave. To register or get more information, call (412) 672-0625.
