Co-Sponsored by Ice Miller, LLP

The 8th annual Night of Vonnegut, co-sponsored by Ice Miller — the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library’s signature event. We are thrilled to announce the 2017 keynote at Night of Vonnegut will be our friend Steve Inskeep, host and reporter with National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, who will participate in a conversation with Nuvo’s David Hoppe on common decency. Broadcast journalist and political reporter Jim Shella will host the event and author Dan Wakefield will present the Kurt Vonnegut Writing Award and the Jane Cox Vonnegut Writing Award to two Shortridge High School students. In honor of the 2017 Year of Vonnegut, KVML will be presenting the first ever Kurt Vonnegut Common Decency Award to a special guest.

Join us for a silent auction, food (thanks to the Rathskeller), drink, and a night of celebration at the 8th annual “Night of Vonnegut” gala for the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enrich your life and support the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library, all in one festive evening!

There are 25 student tickets available at $50 and 175 General Admission tickets available at $125 each.
A portion of each ticket sales counts as a tax-deductible donation to the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library.

Your sponsorship and ticket purchase supports the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library’s work to champion the legacy of Hoosier author Kurt Vonnegut and the principles of free expression, common decency, and peaceful coexistence he advocated. Since its founding, over 250,000 people have visited the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library or attended its arts programming, and in 2015, Lonely Planet listed the Vonnegut Library first in a list of reasons to visit Indianapolis.

Come celebrate all-things Vonnegut and support the library with dinner, a silent auction and a keynote address by Steve Almond. As Kurt said, “Think of what a paradise this world would be if men were kind and wise.”

The Night of Vonnegut is co-sponsored by Ice Miller, LLP.
