Bonyo Bonyo is a true story about how a Kenyan boy’s courage and determination, along with critical support from family and strangers, helped him live out his dream of becoming a physician. Pursuing his goal forces him to leave his family and ultimately his country. But years later he is able to return as a doctor with the resources to build a much-needed clinic.

Bonyo Bonyo is the 2012 Eric Hoffer Book Award Winner in the Children's Category,
and a da Vinci Eye Finalist


The Eric Hoffer Award for short prose and books was established at the start of the 21st century as a means of opening a door to writing of significant merit. It honors the memory of the great American philosopher Eric Hoffer by highlighting salient writing, as well as the independent spirit of small publishers. The winning stories and essays are published in Best New Writing, and the book awards are covered in the US Review of Books.


Each year, the Eric Hoffer Award for books presents the da Vinci Eye to the title(s) with superior cover artwork. Cover art is judged on both content and style. The da Vinci Eye is given in honor of the historic artist/scientist/inventor Leonardo da Vinci. This is an additional distinction beneath the Eric Hoffer Award umbrella.
