The Henry Miller *and* Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Libraries! An alliance for the ages!

Roosevelt and Churchill.

Lennon and McCartney.

Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Rodgers and Astaire.

Mr. Rogers and Mr. McFeely.

The 20th century is rife with incredible strategic partnerships; but none can compare to what I’m about to propose:

Miller and Vonnegut!!

It’s true: an alliance has been forged.

2,299 miles to the east stands the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library. Here’s their homepage; and here is the Facebook.

It’s like an amazing bizarro-world thing; we both have similar charters and both are arts centers that celebrate the legacies of our namesakes. We both have blogs.

Most eerily, their Executive Director of the Vonnegut Library is a gangly, prodigiously handsome ex-fisherman from Finald named, um, Shagmus.

A great bond has been established because a few weeks ago, folks from the Vonnegut Library visited Big Sur and had a power-lunch with Magnus and discussed things logistical (running an arts center) to the more big-picture (world domination.)

So drop the Vonnnegut Library a line, and do keep in touch. And just the idea wash over you like an iconoclastic literary cascade: Henry Miller and Kurt Vonnegut, joining forces.

Indeed, it’s an alliance built to last.

And we promise not to invade Czechoslovakia.
