After 8 years of operation in rented quarters, the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library in Indianapolis, Indiana, has launched a fund raising campaign seeking to raise $1.5 million to acquire a permanent home.
Vonnegut was born in Indianapolis.
Over a career that spanned more than 50-years, he published 14 novels, three short story collections, five plays, and five works of non-fiction, with further collections being published after his death
The museum’s founder and CEO has signed a purchase agreement for a building to display a new exhibition about Vonnegut’s classic “Slaughterhouse-Five.”
It will also display other exhibitions and the organization’s large collection of Vonnegut artifacts and memorabilia.
Vonnegut died in 2007, at age 84.
