"Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library champions the legacy of Kurt Vonnegut and the principles of free expression and common decency".
Youth Writing Program
The purpose of our Youth Writing Program is to offer a safe space, at this time a virtual one, where mentors can engage with Indianapolis youth through the written word so they can be inspired, empowered, and heard.
Teaching Vonnegut Workshops
In 2011 Teaching Vonnegut began as a way for teachers to teach other teachers about the work of Kurt Vonnegut, and create exciting ways to enhance students' engagement in middle school, high school and college classrooms.
Arts in the Park Veterans Workshop
Writing in Peace, a program of the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library in partnership with Turkey Run State Park, is a writing workshop for veterans. Led by award-winning writer Bonnie Maurer, the program will occur at Turkey Run State Park with programs both outside in the park and inside a conference room at the park inn.

About Kurt Vonnegut
Kurt Vonnegut is a renowned author who took an unflinching look at the world, tempered with a satirical eye and sardonic sense of humor. In a career spanning over 50 years, Vonnegut published 14 novels, three short story collections, five plays, and five works of non-fiction. He is most famous for his darkly satirical, best-selling novel Slaughterhouse-Five, which turned 50 years old in 2019.
