Christopher Gardner, the single parent whose autobiography, “The Pursuit of Happyness,” became a New York Times bestseller and inspired the 2006 movie starring Will Smith, is in Honolulu this weekend.

Gardner will attend a screening of the movie, “The Pursuit of Happyness,” and participate in a Q&A session on Saturday, June 21, at Mission Memorial Auditorium.

The event, which will be held from 6-9 p.m., is free and open to the public, but you must register online here.

Earlier in the day, Gardner will speak at an event called “Reboot Your Life: Savvy Strategies for Your Second Act,” which features breakout sessions on health, work, relationships, technology and travel.

Tickets for that event are no longer available.

Both sessions are part of AARP’s Life Reimagined initiative, created by AARP to help older adults turn their goals and dreams into real possibilities. Click here for more information, online tools and other resources.

AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with nearly 150,000 members in Hawaii.
