Henry Winkler Comes to the Library

Some of us remember him as the Fonz, but kids know him as the author of the great series Hank Zipzer. Join Kepler’s and Menlo Park Library in welcoming Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver to the Library on Friday, May 16, 2008, at 7 P.M.

Based on the true life experiences of Henry Winkler, this New York Times best-selling series about the world’s greatest underachiever is funny and touching, while dealing with learning differences in an empathetic way.

Author/Director/Producer/Actor Henry Winkler says, “…Growing up in New York City…no one knew what dyslexia was. I was called stupid, lazy and I was told that I was not living up to my potential…. I spent most of my time covering up the fact that reading, writing, spelling, math, science, actually, every subject but lunch, was really, really difficult for me.”

In his newest adventure, things are looking good for Hank Zipzer, our fourth-grade hero. That is until Hank falls for a girl in his after-school reading program, only to find out that she is the cousin of his greatest rival McKelty. This book, like all in the series, is cowritten with Lin Oliver.
