Henry Winkler 

When: Wed., May 12, 7 p.m. 2010

Many actors write books after spending a significant amount of time in Hollywood, but most of these are of the tell-all confessional variety or New Age revelations. Actor Henry Winkler prefers to focus on children's welfare. Though Winkler is best known from Happy Days as lovable greaser Arthur Fonzarelli, he's also written a series of best-selling childrens' books. Co-authored with Lin Oliver, the Hank Zipzer series follows the titular character as he navigates school with his learning differences (much like Winkler, who grew up with undiagnosed dyslexia). The 17th installment, A Brand New Me!, sees live wire Hank get ready to graduate elementary school and matriculate into the middle school jungle. Winkler and Oliver channel a young boy's voice effectively, with realistic, age-appropriate dialogue, internal commentary and references. (Remember A.B.C. gum?) The event begins at 7 p.m., but don't expect him to hit a jukebox to start the program. —Sarah Ewald
