The FloShow, Multimedia Book Talk/Presentation

Join me for the multimedia presentation based on my book about my uncle, one of Ringling’s most famous clowns. “Becoming FLO” is the inspiring true story of 16-year old Abraham, the Orthodox Jewish boy who fled home in 1920 from a homophobic, abusive father, joined a traveling circus, overcame anti-Semitism, found fame, and finally, in the safety of her circus family - found herself. FLO.

FLO’s remarkable story shines a light on courage in an era of intolerance, the power of art to transcend, and for those who struggle similarly, illuminates a way out.

Book signing follows.
