Commemorating the Release of Winkler’s New Autobiography
Every Ticket Includes a copy of Being Henry with an author-signed bookplate
Television’s Henry Winkler (Happy Days, Arrested Development, Barry) celebrates the release of his new memoir and fifty years of stardom.
Over the past half century, few figures in the public eye have had a career as complex and storied as Henry Winkler. From an early star turn in the role of Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli on the hit show Happy Days, multiple decades as a producer and director in Hollywood, his reemergence as a performer on television’s Arrested Development and HBO’s Barry, along with the creation of his popular series of Hank Zipzer children’s books, Winkler’s artistry has captivated millions and cemented him as a timeless American icon. Join Henry at The Town Hall for an extensive conversation and celebration of his new memoir, which explores the joys of fame, the curse of typecasting, Winkler’s struggles with dyslexia, and what drives him to continue creating and growing into his seventies and beyond. All tickets to this event include a copy of Being Henry with an author-signed bookplate.
