please help spread the word about the vonnegut initiative

If you have any old Vonnegut books that you aren’t using, please consider sending them to this address. I promise you, they will get into the hands of young people that could benefit from them. And please feel free to use this ad on your own sites… There’s no better way to say “goodbye” and “thank you” to Kurt Vonnegut than to get his books into the hands of as yet unremarkable midwestern teens.

(Thanks to Katy for designing the ad.)


(And thanks to Ken for designing this one.)

    it’s funny, but i’ve been leaving books in different places for people to pick up and read, but i’ve never thought of vonnegut before and i don’t know why. mostely i’ve left “the handmaids tale” or “the sheep look up” both of which i recommend highly, but for some reason i’ve neglected vonnegut. i will correct this immediately.

    What about potentially remarkable young urbanites?

    Thanks, Ken, I got it up on the front page this morning.

    And thanks to you too, Dorothy. Vonnegut, I think, would be a lovely addition.

    As for urbanites, Katy, I’m sure they could get some benefit from the program, but my sense is that suburban youth is more at risk in this particular area. Let’s start with the suburbs, and then take it from there.

    I’d suggest removing the extra commas around “possibly” in the 2nd banner.
