  1. I feel the project was well done over all. I enjoyed hearing about the recent cannonization of Vonnegut and how in his own time, he was merely received as a science fiction writer. I also found it interesting to note that he became a lit celebrity in his own time, and how that helped him achieve cannonization in his later years. It seems that he helped put forth the idea that science fiction is worthy of literary ambitions. I’ve already put Galapagos on my list of books I need to read, and thanks to your discussion, I greatly look forward to delvign into it.
