This is your chance to meet Emmy Award-winning actor Henry Winkler, best known for his roles in Happy Days and Barry, and Lin Oliver, the writing duo behind the Hank Zipzer series. They are visiting to introduce their new laugh-out-loud out-of-this-world middle-grade series, Alien Superstar, about an alien who somehow lands in Hollywood and becomes a teen sensation.

No one is shocked by the six-eyed alien strolling around the Universal back lot. The tourists just think he’s part of the show. It doesn’t take long for Buddy to land a role on a popular TV show, playing (of course) an alien. He becomes an overnight heartthrob and is suddenly faced with legions of adoring fans, rides in glamorous limos, and appearances at “all-the-shrimp-you-can-eat” red carpet parties. But can Buddy maintain his secret identity while in the spotlight?
