Our Next Event

07/14/2014 - 7:00pm

Two fiction writers team up for an evening of stories.

Unravished is Hester Kaplan's new collection of stories. Roxana Robinson calls it "...smart, thoughtful, beautiful and wise, full of the small but important illuminations we need, as we make our way through our lives."

Hester Kaplan is the author of The Edge of Marriage, which won the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction, and Kinship Theory, a novel. Her short stories have been included in The Best American Short Stories series. She teaches in Lesley University's MFA Program in Creative Writing and lives in Rhode Island.

Carolyn Cooke's Amor and Psycho was named one of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2013. Set against a vast American landscape that ranges from Manhattan to the lush rain forests and marijuana farms of Northern California, these eleven stories from the acclaimed author of The Bostons and Daughters of the Revolution dive into our darkest spaces, confronting the absurdity and poetry of human existence.

Carolyn Cooke’s Daughters of the Revolution was listed among the best novels of 2011 by the San Francisco Chronicle and The New Yorker. Her short fiction, collected in The Bostons, won the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize, was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award and has appeared in AGNI, The Paris Review and two volumes each of The Best American Short Stories and The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories. She directs the MFA writing program at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.
