Event description

Description

Stories Bookshop + Storytelling Lab is thrilled to partner with Brooklyn Public Library for a fun-filled afternoon for Brooklyn families with actor, director and writer Henry Winkler and co-author Lin Oliver, to celebrate the publication of their new children’s book, Everybody is Somebody, the twelfth and final installment in the Here’s Hank series. This is an all-ages event. See below for all ticketing and book purchasing options.

Hank is a kid who doesn’t try to be funny, but somehow always manages to make the other kids laugh. He’s pretty bad at memorizing stuff, and spelling is his worst subject (but so are math and reading!) The books feature an easy-to-read font designed especially for dyslexic readers. In HERE’S HANK: Everybody is Somebody, when a well-known author of a beloved book series visits Hank's school, he and his two best friends get the chance to be her guide for the day and introduce her at an assembly. But Hank, embarrassed by his struggles with reading, tries to hide the fact that he's never actually finished reading the author's books—or any book, for that matter! So Hank gets creative and makes up his own version of the story. But will everyone be able to tell fact from fiction?

Henry Winkler is an actor, producer, and director, and he speaks publicly all over the world. He has a star on the Hollywood Boulevard, was awarded an honorary Order of the British Empire, and the jacket he wore as the Fonz hangs in the Smithsonian Museum. But if you asked him what he was proudest of, he would say, "Writing the Hank Zipzer books with my partner, Lin Oliver," He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Stacey. They have three children named Jed, Zoe, and Max, and two dogs named Monty and Charlotte. Charlotte catches a ball so well that she could definitely play outfield for the New York Mets.

Lin Oliver is a writer and producer of movies, book, and television series for children and families. She has written forty-two books for children and one hundred episodes of television. She is cofounder and executive director of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, an international organization of twenty thousand authors and illustrators of children's books. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Alan. They have three sons named Theo, Ollie, and Cole. She loves tuna melts, curious kids, any sport that involves a racket and children's book writers everywhere.
