July 10, 2014 Meetup: Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

The international fame and notoriety of Indianapolis-born Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. has only grown in the seven years after his death.  Vonnegut was an American original and master of the dark comedy.  Our book club meets at the Rathskeller, which is less than one mile from the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library.  And to add even more local flavor to this month's book selection, Vonnegut's grandfather was an architect for the beautiful Athenaeum building, where we will be discussing Slaughterhouse-Five on July 10!
