This Day in History

Born on Veteran's Day in 1922, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. was a celebrated -- but controversial -- author. Vonnegut's experiences as both a soldier and prisoner of war influenced his writing. His dark humor made him a popular figure in the counterculture movement of the 1960s. A variety of his work is available at the NCC Libraries, including:
