Winkler, who is best known for his role as Fonzie in the 1970s hit sitcom “Happy Days,” was so impressed with the City and the response he received during the Mission Viejo Readers’ Festival last September that he wanted to return for the release of his final Hank Zipzer book.
Winkler will appear in a special Writers Present program at 7 p.m. in the Sycamore Room of the Norman P. Murray Community Center, 24932 Veterans Way. The free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Mission Viejo Library.
The humorous Hank Zipzer books tell the tale of a young boy with learning disabilities. The series’ theme is that each of us is unique and can make a special contribution to the world. “No matter what obstacle you face, there is a way to beat it and find your dream.” In the last book of the Hank Zipzer series, “A Brand New Me,” Hank is in a panic that he will not get into the middle school of his dreams.
During the free program, audience members will have a chance to meet Henry and buy a copy of his book.
“Both the publisher, Grosset & Dunlap and The Whale of a Tale Children’s Books Shoppe made Henry’s visit to Mission Viejo possible,” said Valerie Maginnis, Director of Library Services.
