Description

Join Lewis Black, Nanette Vonnegut, David Brancaccio, Dan Simon, and Julia Whitehead, the Founder and CEO of the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library (KVML) for a reception to benefit the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library on May 1st from 6-8 p.m. at West Bank Café in Manhattan. Hear their entertaining thoughts on Vonnegut while you learn about the exciting developments with the only museum in the world dedicated to honoring the legacy of Kurt Vonnegut while advocating for free expression and common decency.

KVML houses Vonnegut’s personal artifacts such as his typewriter, reading glasses, Purple Heart, artwork, and more. The organization is not just a museum, it works directly with prisoners, veterans, teachers, students, free speech advocates, general readers, and others to create a special community of socially conscious do-gooders and rabble-rousers.

KVML must raise $1 million by May 15th to engage in the other funding discussions that will help the organization buy its dream building and perform the build-out needed to open to the public in September. KVML is undertaking a “50-State Strategy” to engage audiences all over the country in support of this important national cause.

Here in the year of the 50th Anniversary of Slaughterhouse-Five, the year that KVML is giving away 86,000 copies of the book to Indiana students, come show your support for the man who made your formative years better, Kurt Vonnegut.
