Actor Henry Winkler will reminisce about "Happy Days" and some of the less happy days in his life when he comes to the Madison Theatre at Molloy University in Rockville Centre on Nov. 1.

The event, which is being presented by Long Island Litfest, is tied to the Oct. 31 release of his memoir, "Being Henry: The Fonz ... and Beyond" (Celadon Books, $30). Admission is $50 and includes a Q&A moderated by Newsday's Elisa DiStefano, a book signing and a photo opportunity with Winkler. To reserve tickets, go to longislandlitfest.com.

According to the publisher, "Being Henry" will deal with the highs and lows of Winkler's life and career, including his rough childhood in Manhattan, his lifelong struggle with dyslexia, achieving TV stardom as Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli on "Happy Days," his difficulty finding work after the series ended, and his recent career renaissance and Emmy Award win with the HBO series "Barry."

In addition to acting, Winkler is the author of the successful "Hank Zipzer" series of children's books about a boy with learning disabilities. The series was modeled after Winkler's own childhood experiences.
