From Emmy-award winning actor, author, comedian, producer, and director Henry Winkler comes Being Henry, a deeply thoughtful memoir of the lifelong effects of stardom and the struggle to become whole. Winkler, who launched into prominence with his role as “The Fonz” in the beloved “Happy Days,” has transcended the role that made him famous. Brilliant, funny, and widely-regarded as the nicest man in Hollywood (though he would be the first to tell you that it’s simply not the case, he’s really just grateful to be here), Winkler shares in this achingly vulnerable memoir the disheartening truth of his childhood, the difficulties of a life with severe dyslexia, the pressures of a role that takes on a life of its own, and the path forward once your wildest dream seems behind you.

Since the glorious era of “Happy Days” fame, Winkler has endeared himself to a new generation with roles in such adored shows as “Arrested Development,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Barry,” where he’s revealed himself as an actor with immense depth and pathos, a departure from the period of his life when he was so distinctly typecast as The Fonz, he could hardly find work.

Filled with profound heart, charm, and self-deprecating humor, Being Henry is a memoir about so much more than a life in Hollywood and the curse of stardom. It is a meaningful testament to the power of sharing truth and kindness and of finding fulfillment within yourself.

Winkler will be in conversation with Daniel Silva, the award-winning #1 New York Times bestselling author of twenty-six novels, including The Collector, Portrait of an Unknown Woman, and The Cellist.
