Kurt Vonnegut's 1969 masterpiece Slaughterhouse-Five is the perfect book to revisit as NASA explores Mars and humanity faces mass catastrophe. 

It's got humor in the face of destruction, it's got timeless insights about the nature of existence, and it's got space aliens.

This is the novel that took Vonnegut more than 20 years to write after witnessing the firebombing of Dresden during World War II.

We will read it over four weeks together, gathering on Monday nights to discuss it. Each session begins with a talk by Christopher Frizzelle — full of insights about the text and the backstory of its creation — followed by an open discussion. 

We will meet for 1.5 to 2 hours per session, depending on how lively the discussion gets.

In addition to having an inspiring encounter with a great book, you'll probably also make a bunch of new friends.

And if you miss any sessions, no problem: A recording of each session will be sent to all ticket-holders automatically.
