Actor/author Henry Winkler has rescheduled his May 14 Authors! Authors! appearance to 7 p.m. June 18 in the Stranahan Theater. Winkler had been slated to speak in Toledo. Popular in the United Kingdom where he was named one of the top 10 Literacy Heroes in December, he'll be filming a new BBC series in London in mid-May.

Winkler, 68, became famous for his portrayal of Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli in the television sitcom Happy Days. In the last few years, his career has sparked on the heels of his co-authoring a series of children's books with writing partner Lin Oliver called Hank Zipzer, the World's Greatest Underachiever, based on his own early struggles with undiagnosed dyslexia. Authors! Authors! is presented by The Blade and organized by the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library.

Tickets purchased for the May 14 date will be honored on June 18. Seating is first-come, first served. To receive a refund, leave your ticket before June 18, with your name and address, at the service desk of any library location and a check will be mailed to you. Information: 419-259-5266.
