Authors Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver appear on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 6 PM for a special reading and discussion of their new book, 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?
