Teenage Juggler Reaches the Major Leagues


A belated congratulations to Book Kennison. The juggling prodigy from St. Charles recently fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional clown at the circus equivalent of Major League Baseball.

He's been hired by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and will be traveling with the company's Blue Tour.

In 2003 the then 13-year-old Kennison (right) was the subject of an RFT feature story. You can read more about the artist -- and his juggling family -- here.
