Join us as we talk to author and professor, Christina Jarvis. We discuss how Christina’s book stealing led to finding Vonnegut, the correct pronunciation of Bokononism, and researching Kurt’s planetary citizenship. The episode culminates in a Vonnegut trivia face-off between curator Chris and Christina! Originally aired on May 28th, 2022.
