A Novel Event 2015




What: A Novel Event, benefiting over 7,000 Milwaukee students annually

Where: The Pfister Hotel, Grand Ballroom

When: Monday, September 28, 2015

Time: 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

For the past 18 years, SHARP Literacy, Inc. has been using the visual arts to improve reading skills and build vocabulary for some of Milwaukee’s most challenged students. We are excited to announce that the keynote speaker for SHARP’s 14th annual A Novel Event is actor, director, and author Henry Winkler.

Winkler’s portrayal of “the Fonz” for 10 seasons on Happy Days made him one of the most recognized actors in the world. Winkler also appeared on Fox’s highly acclaimed series Arrested Development. Henry is currently on the cast of the USA Network series, Royal Pains, and the Cartoon Networks first live- action satirical comedy Children’s Hospital.

In 2003, he began writing a series of children’s novels entitled, Hank Zipzer: The World’s Greatest Under Achiever. The books are inspired by Winkler’s struggle throughout his education due to his learning challenges. He has since toured elementary schools, reading excerpts from his best-selling books. Winkler’s mission coincides with SHARP’s mission to inspire children to read.
