day 194 of 365

What do this face and Welcome to the Monkey House have in common? They were both created by Vonneguts. The face above is part of a painting on the walls of the underpass on Route 6A in Barnstable, and was created by artist Edie Vonnegut. The underpass paintings were even turned into a radio play. And of course Welcome to the Monkey House is author Kurt Vonnegut's collection of essays, including one on Barnstable Village and the Sturgis Library, where I work. You can read that highly amusing essay here.

  1. I just happened upon this blog- and it reminds me so much of home. I'm from Barnstable, but away at school, so this little surprise did much to liven up my spirits. Away from home, and off-Cape, during the summer is rather tragic, if you ask me.
