I was so excited to get to meet Henry Winkler at the library yesterday evening. He came over to give a little talk after one of our Classical Concerts. He writes a series of children's books about Hank Zipzer, a young overachieving underachiever, and he often goes out to talk about how he succeeded in spite of his dyslexia. Given the HUGE crowd, I fled before the concert. I did, however, get to meet Mr. Winkler briefly while he was just hanging out in the conference room. As you can see, I got a photo with him. I was completely dorked out by his presence. Even more than I usually am. I told him I loved all of his work, but was a special fan of Arrested Development. He was very kind and warm. Fortunately, in spite of being all goobered out, I did at least look super in my Sebastien original. haha!
Henry Winkler is probably the famous person I've been most excited to meet. (I haven't met many famous people, but admit it...he is awesome!) Tell me about your brushes with greatness!
