Bonnie Wallace reads from her book “The Hollywood Parents Guide" October 4

Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents
An Afternoon with Bonnie Wallace
October 4, 2015
@ A Nonprofit Retreat Center on Bainbridge Island

Bonnie Wallace reads from her new book, “The Hollywood Parents Guide: Your Roadmap To Pursuing Your Child's Dream,” the first comprehensive guide written to help parents steer the career of their young actor. Funny, heartfelt, and informative, the book includes interviews with parents of other young Hollywood stars, and industry insiders. Bonnie is the mother of Disney Star Dove Cameron, who got her start at Bainbridge Performing Arts at the age of eight.

“From A to Z The Hollywood Parents Guide answers every question I have received as a Casting Director and more. If your child wants to be a professional actor, the first thing you need to realize is that acting is a business and as in any business, there are rules to help guide you. Bonnie Wallace has given parents a How to Guide that is a must read.” — Suzanne Goddard-Smythe, Casting Director, nominated for two Artios Awards (Outstanding Achievement in Casting)

“...It’s like arming yourself with a mini toolbox full of all the tools that you’ll need to help guide you as you venture along this journey with your child. I should make it required reading for the parents of all of my clients!” — Pamela Fisher, Vice President Abrams Artists Agency — Head of Youth and Young Adult
