Henry Winkler will be speaking at the Alberta Bair Theater in Billings on Oct. 17. Winkler is an actor, director, producer and author. He is best known for his role as "The Fonz" on the 1970s television show "Happy Days." He will be speaking about his struggles with dyslexia and the challenges faced by children, parents and teachers in dealing with learning disabilities.

Winkler is the co-writer of a series of children's books called "Hank Zipzer: The World's Greatest Underacheiver." The series stars Hank Zipzer, a boy growing up in New York City who suffers from dyslexia. Winkler based Hank's character on his own childhood experiences. He also co-wrote the "Ghost Buddy" series, about a young boy who moves to a new town and unexpectedly finds himself sharing a bedroom with a ghost. In addition to his children's books, Winkler wrote "I've Never Met an Idiot on the River," a collection of stories and photographs about his annual fly fishing trips to Montana.

Tickets are available for $28.50 for adults and $16 for students 13 and under. They may be purchased at the Alberta Bair Theater's website or box office. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Montana State Reading Council.
