All About Eddie Bowman

Eddie Bowman is a native Missourian, having grown up on a small farm near Purdy, Missouri. He is an author, song writer, entertainer and inspirational speaker. He played the part of "Chester Drawers" in Branson for eight years, and is now visiting schools and entertaining students while imparting valuable information for learning and encouragement. He visits about 330 schools a year in 15 states.

Eddie is a down-to-earth person who has the ability to take the most ordinary things, and create a story that will be both interesting and helpful. His 17 children's books are suited for elementary students. They are on the Accelerated Reader program. In story and song, Eddie brings his audiences heart-warming experiences, and home-spun stories of humor that will challenge listeners to apply themselves to learning and opportunity. He sees the potential of children, and how they must believe in themselves and prepare daily through personal effort and discipline to become what they want to be.

Having four children, five grandchildren, and one great-grandchild of his own, Eddie treasures youth, and is dedicated to helping direct them to a happy, successful future. Eddie is available for your next school or library program.
