Welcome to the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library Blog!
Welcome to the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library Blog! I am honored, grateful, and I must admit, a little nervous to author this blog. Why am I nervous? I have been asked to write for a library dedicated to a man whom I consider to be one of the best American authors of the 20th century. Despite the fear of failure and rejection that has since been churning at the pit of my stomach, I could not turn down such an amazing opportunity. I hope that I can live up to the challenge and do not disappoint you.
My goal for this blog is to spread knowledge about not only the life of Kurt Vonnegut, but also the things that influenced him and the impact he has had on the world. I will also write about KVML happenings. This is an informal blog and I hope that you take the time to comment, make suggestions, and share your Vonnegut experiences with me. What about Kurt Vonnegut’s life do you want to know more about? Humanism? Indianapolis? Unfiltered Pall Malls? You tell me. I do not pretend to be a Vonnegut expert but I will work hard to find the answers and look forward to learning more about his life, work, and influences with you.
Here we are, insecurities cast aside, at the end of the first blog post for the KVML. I hope at least some of you are as excited about this as I am.
