About Selected Shorts: A Centennial Celebration of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr

In 1922, one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century was born, and through his darkly comic works he spoke out about the ravages of war, political corruption, social injustice, and human foibles. We honor this prolific, complex, and remarkable author with an evening of humorous and poignant short fiction curated from the posthumously published collection, Complete Works. Hosted by Jordan Klepper (The Daily Show), with commentary from Hari Kondabolu (The Problem with Apu), and featuring performances by Bhavesh Patel (Present Laughter), and more.

Produced in cooperation with Library of America

About Selected Shorts

Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.

Recent readers include Ellen Burstyn, Kate Walsh, Bebe Neuwirth, Claire Danes, Michael Shannon, Kyle Maclachlan, LeVar Burton, Jane Curtin, Danielle Brooks, Cynthia Nixon, Rainn Wilson, Holly Hunter, Hugh Dancy, Joan Allen, Josh Radnor, Tony Shalhoub, Maggie Gyllenhaal, BD Wong and more.
