Favorite Vonnegut quote?   “I urge you to please notice when you are happy and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, “If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.”

The best thing about being a KVML board member?  The best thing about serving on the board is introduces others to Vonnegut’s life and work and the work we do at the Vonnegut Library.

What inspires you to serve on the KVML board?  The Vonnegut Library does so much good… whether it’s holding veterans’ writing workshops or working with students and teachers or battling a school that wants to ban Slaughterhouse-Five, the Vonnegut Library provides a creative and educational space where people of all ages gather in discussion and friendship.

Favorite event on the KVML calendar?   Banned Books Week is definitely my favorite week of the year. We greet so many new faces and talk about Vonnegut’s work and the work of other great authors. It’s a celebration of the humanities and freedoms. What’s not to love?

What do you wish people knew about the KVML?  I wish people could get to know our amazing staff members. I have never known such dedicated, creative, and knowledgeable team members. They accomplish so much with so little. They are absolutely the right people for this library.
