Join Russell Tanenbaum on Monday, May 13 at 6:30 for a discussion of Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut in the Lawson McGhee Library meeting room.
A classic of American literature, Slaughterhouse-Five is the story of a man named Billy Pilgrim. The story alternates between his past as a World War II prisoner of war in Dresden, his present ordinary middle-class existence, and his future as an alien captive on the planet Tralfamadore. Considered one of the best anti-war books, Slaughterhouse-Five is brimming with satire and compassion.
