Mother Night

Talk of Iowa Book Club Podcast logo

Kurt Vonnegut’s “Mother Night” explores issues of morality, humanity and individual responsibility in the aftermath of World War II. While the book was first published in 1961, the themes feel eerily relevant to the state of affairs in 2021.

On this episode, host Charity Nebbe is joined by Vonnegut scholars and expert readers for a discussion of this timeless modern classic.
