Sue Lawton

2013 Artist in Residence Finalist: Sue Lawton

Most recently, Sue self-published her first book, "The Circus and the Cyclone," a piece of fantastical historical fiction set against the worst natural disaster in Wisconsin's history - the destruction of the town of New Richmond by a tornado in 1899. Using this backdrop, she has created a narrative that weaves between a pair of childhood friends, now grown and fallen in love, a pair of clowns competing for the affections of a beautiful contortionist traveling with the circus and a megalomaniac human cannonball who dreams of flying to the moon. All of these stories culminate when the tornado suddenly strikes, turning fates and revealing hidden truths.
