The Waterbury Public Library wraps up its Vermont Reads 2022 programming with a movie night “Under the Cloak of Darkness” (2008), a feature-length documentary about Vermont’s migrant Mexican farm worker population that aims to humanize this invisible community and bring to light the issues surrounding migrant labor.  The movie will be followed by a discussion and refreshments.

The Most Costly Journey is an anthology of comics depicting the oral histories of migrant workers from southern Mexico and Central America who traveled to work on Vermont farms.
