Using his sardonic sense of humor, renowned author Kurt Vonnegut took an unflinching look at the world. In honor of his wit and wisdom, the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library champions the literary, artistic and cultural contributions of the late write, artist, and Indianapolis native Kurt Vonnegut. The library/museum serves as a cultural and educational resource unique to the nation. Sit hunched over the same kind of typewriter Kurt Vonnegut pecked away on, next to his famous red rooster lamp. See Vonnegut's drawings and doodles (including Kilgore Trout) and the author's actual typewriter, reading glasses, Purple Heart, one of his infamous packs of Pall Mall cigarettes and other belongings generously shared by his family. View photos from family, friends and fans that reveal the man as he lived: lounging, laughing and languidly contemplating the universes inside his head. Browse the Kevin Schehr Collection: first editions of every Vonnegut novel, several signed editions, films based on his work and nearly 300 magazines featuring reviews, short stories and political commentary. Marvel over the rejection letters Vonnegut received from shortsighted editors! Enjoy events featuring writers, musicians and artists.
