Building on this year's theme of continuing to improve the quality of education in the Antelope Valley, Winkler has always been concerned about the quality of children's television programming. He has produced countless worthwhile projects for young audiences. Winkler is also a New York Times best-selling author. His first book, Niagara Falls, or Does it? Hank Zipzer the World's Greatest Under-Achiever, became a bestseller. To date, he and his co-author, Lin Oliver, have written 34 children's novels. Their latest is HERE'S HANK: Everybody is Somebody. The books were inspired by Winkler's struggle throughout his education due to his learning challenges.
