Vonnegut Trivia – Week of August 20, 2017

This week’s question is from Vonnegut’s debut novel, Player Piano:

What is the name of the group of workers and engineers who strike out against the machines in order to restore a sense of worth to people’s lives?

  1. The Reeks and Wrecks
  2. The Ghost Shirt Society
  3. The Proteus Rebellion
  4. The Ghost Dance Uprising

Check back next week for the answer.  The correct response to our last question is Midland City.  Dwayne Hoover owned a Pontiac dealership in this fictional Midwestern town, a frequent setting in Vonnegut’s work.
