HALIFAX - Henry Winkler, who played Fonzie on the popular Happy Days show in the 1970s and 80s, is coming to Halifax next month as part of an education conference.

According to a release from the Emergent Learning Conference, Winkler will be a keynote speaker at the event April 24 and 25 at the World Trade and Convention Centre.

Although Winkler earned fame with his TV role, the actor’s keynote speech will deal with his struggles in the education system due to learning challenges.

“Today, Winkler travels as a writer, speaker, and philanthropist, educating people about learning disabilities and inspiring children, parents, and teachers all over the world,” said the release.

    I am trying to contact Henry Winkler in reference to education other regarding disabilities since I recently wrote a children store about being bullies and being different and would share to share with Mr. Winkler.
