Synopsis: Bonnie Barnett remembered meeting her father for the first time when she was four at the circus. When Bobo lifted her to kiss her, someone snapped a photograph that was later used on the front page of the newspaper. Many years later, Ro Kim, an incredibly talented artist from Korea was commissioned by Bonnie to paint this moment from a tattered newspaper clipping to give to her father for his 80th birthday. Ro's artistic gift brought this memory to life, and thus begins the tale of Bobo's Daughter.
She was the child of two famous circus clowns from the 30s and 40s, yet raised by her single mother in a town where she hid her flamboyant family history until . . . her prayers were answered with drama, lights and music. Forced to walk a road of difficult discovery and heart-wrenching healing, she almost gave in to despair . . . but there were real live MIRACLES along the way. Searching for her earthly father, the clown, she found her Heavenly Father as well.
Twenty-five years in the making, reading Bobo's Daughter is a chance to glimpse the humanness of Bobo, the clown. Chester "Bobo" Barnett, the Prince of Clowns, was talented, clever, charming and funny. He also had weaknesses and everyone said, "a bad temper." Even so, it took his persistent daughter to eventually take off the mask and insist he be a father. He started his clown career in the roaring 20s as a white face clown, later performing as a featured act with the Polack Bros. Circus, Clyde Beatty Circus and Hamid-Morton Circus with his midget sized car. Performing mostly with Shrine Circuses he also played with the Moscow State Circus in Europe, East Berlin, Cuba for Batista and was on the Ed Sullivan Show twice. Optioned for a television movie, Bobo's Daughter will warm your heart.
About the Author: Bonnie Ann Barnett was first trained as an artist, later becoming a Marriage, Family and Child Therapist. During her life a central theme has motivated her to find the members of her estranged family, leading her to writing this book. Originally from Los Angeles, she is currently living in North Carolina with her family and a menagerie of critters and California dreaming.
