Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library

Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library

Renowned author Kurt Vonnegut took an unflinching look at the world, tempered with a satirical eye and sardonic sense of humor.

In honor of his wit and wisdom, the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library champions the literary, artistic and cultural contributions of the late writer, artist, teacher and Indianapolis native Kurt Vonnegut. The library/museum serves as a cultural and educational resource unique to the nation.

We also honor Kurt Vonnegut’s military career and his honest portrayal of war in novels by reaching out to veterans through writing workshops, Veterans Reclaim Armistice Day panels, exhibits by soldier-artists and more.
