Living Writers Series: Carolyn Cooke

November 7, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm  |  Kresge Town Hall


LivingWritersPosterFall2013Thresholds and Breaking Points

The writers in this series will present across multiple genres, to include poetry, fiction, criticism, and various hybrid genres. Each will explore ways that language tests thresholds of culture, race, nation, sex, gender, and desire through the creative imagination. Central to each will be how these thresholds are performed, tested, broken, clarified and complicated in their works.

Carolyn Cooke’s novel Daughters of the Revolution was listed among the best novels of 2011 by the San Francisco Chronicle and The New Yorker Magazine.  Her short fiction, collected in The Bostons, won the PEN/Bingham Award, and has appeared in AGNI, The Paris Review, Ploughshares and two volumes each of Best American Short Stories and O. Henry Prize Stories. Her new collection, Amor & Psycho, was published by Alfred A. Knopf this summer. Carolyn directs the MFA programs at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.
