Classics Club: Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut

Book club discussion
Thursday, September 22, 7 pm
Cantankerous author Kilgore Trout ventures to a Midwestern science fiction convention only to find that Dwayne Hoover, a slightly unhinged used car salesman, has been taking his outlandish fiction as literal truth. One of Vonnegut’s most enduring works, Breakfast of Champions is a darkly humorous satire that skewers Middle American values while also looking at war, sex, racism, politics, and pollution.  Join us to discuss this American classic.
