The Life of Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

For my CURCA project I researched and put together a presentation on Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s life and background on some of his most important works. Vonnegut is an excellent author for people to know about because of his unique writing style and also how he calls out problems in society and politics through the use of fictionalized events and satire. These are not always very straightforward themes to find in books and are often hidden messages which is one way Vonnegut alludes to some of the world issues in the 1950’s-70’s. For those interested in a good read with a good message behind it, this presentation will both educate you on Kurt Vonnegut’s background and also his novels and why they are worth the read.
