Neighbors will gather on Dec. 3 to listen to a 20-minute segment of the public radio show “This American Life,” hosted by Ira Glass. The episode is called “Neighbors,” and it’s described as “Stories of people trying to love their neighbors … and failing.”
The following is the show’s summary of the segment: “When he was just a kid, Davy Rothbart and his family visited the most famous neighbor in America —Mr. Rogers — at his summer cottage on Nantucket. Two decades later, as an adult, Davy went back for another visit with Mr. Rogers. This time he brought stories from his own neighborhood, stories of neighborly conflict and distrust — to see what kind of advice Mr. Rogers could give him.”
A group discussion will follow the podcast.
The event is the second in a series organized by the Linden Hills Neighborhood Council Communications Committee. The gathering is Thursday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. at the Linden Hills Recreation Center, 3100 W. 43rd St.
