The main character in the series is elementary schooler Hank Zipzer. And, like Winkler, Hank has dyslexia. The books feature specialized font for children with dyslexia and also teach lessons about diversity, inclusion, bullying, and in this most recent book, how to be part of a team even if you aren’t that great at basketball.

Winkler spoke with Lois Reitzes about the new book on "City Lights."
