Kent Featured Speaker Series presents Maxwell King

November 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Featured Speaker Series presents Maxwell King!

Maxwell King is the author of the first full-length biography of Fred Rogers, “The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers”. As former editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer and a director of the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media, King created this definitive portrait of Rogers, a beloved figure, cherished by multiple generations. King’s four-decade career also includes presidencies at two of the country’s largest philanthropies – The Pittsburgh Foundation and Heinz Endowments. His strong advocacy for vulnerable groups – at least 30% of the region’s population – in the benefit streams of a resurgent Pittsburgh, anchored a signature organizing principle: 100 Percent Pittsburgh.
