As an O. Henry Award winner in 1997 and ’98, and with work anthologized in Best American Short Stories, Carolyn Cooke might be content to rest on her laurels. But the Point Arena author has hit another one out of the park with Daughters of the Revolution, the short-story writer’s first novel. Using the backdrop of a New England prep school in the throes of the social, political and sexual upheaval of the 1960s, Cooke demonstrates that the skill behind her first collection, The Bostons, is still in fine health in the long form. Cooke reads from Daughters of the Revolution on Sunday, June 12, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960.
