Holcomb To Discuss the "Real" Billy Pilgrim
Who was the real-life soldier who inspired the Billy Pilgrim character central to Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five? Historian Grant Holcomb will tell the story of this soldier at 7 p.m. 8 June in the Athenaeum, 401 East Michigan Street, Indianapolis. It's sponsored by the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library.
