Author Signing and Visit with Stacy Carlson
Stacy Carlson, author of Among the Wonderful, recently returned from a two-week-long artist residency in the far north. As part of The Arctic Circle's Summer Solstice Expedition 2013, she traveled along the west coast of Svalbard aboard a barkentine schooner with a group of 25 other artists.
"Carlson (sets) her story before the dawn of the modern circus, in the little-explored days when Barnum was a museum man . . . And (Ana) Swift is a most charming narrator with which to explore this world. . . . The great mystery of Wonderful is that Barnum, the flashiest character in the 1800s, doesn't keep center stage. Instead, all our focus, and the entirety of our affection, is directed to the noticeably slouching giantess at the fringes of the action. That's some kind of show-business magic at work."
