Hi everyone!

50 Years of Happy Days: A Visual History of an American Television Classic” is scheduled to release on October 15th, 2024 from Insight Editions and is available for preorder.

Author Brian Levant worked on “Happy Days”, as did author Fred Fox Jr. Henry (“The Fonz”) Winkler writes the foreword. The cover and pages shown on Amazon are not yet final.
