Selected Shorts: A Centennial Celebration of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.


In 1922, one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century was born, and through his darkly comic works he spoke out about the ravages of war, political corruption, social injustice, and human foibles. We honor this prolific, complex, and remarkable author with an evening of humorous and poignant short fiction curated from the posthumously published collection, Complete Stories. Hosted by Jordan Klepper (The Daily Show), and featuring performances by Becky Ann Baker (New Amsterdam), Dylan Baker (Hunters), Teagle F. Bougere (Queen America), Bhavesh Patel (Present Laughter), and Sarah Steele (The Good Fight).

Please note: Hari Kondabolu is no longer able to take part in this event, due to illness. In addition, due to a scheduling conflict, Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer will no longer be appearing.

Produced in cooperation with Library of America
