ABSTRACT
The article features Kurt Vonnegut, a novelist and member of the Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. The cultural provincialism he decried and often parodied still exists in Indianapolis, Indiana. The city had embarked on "The Year of Kurt Vonnegut" in 2007, a program of community activities and events honoring his Indianapolis heritage and literary contributions to the world. It provides an overview of his career. His politics came from a progressive Hoosier tradition, partially imported from European immigrants.
