JACKSON TWP.  Best known for his iconic portrayal of The Fonz on 10 seasons of "Happy Days," actor Henry Winkler is coming to town.

"An Evening With Henry Winkler" will be presented Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Kent State University at Stark's Conference Center, in the Timken Great Hall, as part of the Featured Speakers Series.

Winkler will share humorous anecdotes and inspirational life lessons from his acting career and from overcoming personal adversity. Winkler struggled  for many years with undiagnosed dyslexia, and this inspired him to be an avid advocate for changes in the educational system regarding learning challenges. He also has written best-selling children’s books inspired by experiences throughout his formative years.

In addition to "Happy Days," Winkler's acting credentials include the films "The Waterboy" and "Scream" and TV series "Arrested Development" and "Parks and Recreation."

Winkler's lecture is free and open to the public but tickets are required. A limited number of tickets per person will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 11 and will remain available each weekday during regular hours at the Kent Stark Main Hall Information Desk. No phone or email reservations will be taken. For more details, and for information about other upcoming Featured Speakers Series programs, visit www.kent.edu/stark/featured-speakers-series.
