The Most Costly Journey Comics Workshop

Live Event
January 14, 2023: 10:00 am

Join award-winning cartoonist & educator Marek Bennett for a closer look at the Vermont Reads 2022 book The Most Costly Journey.

Based on stories told by migrant farm workers and drawn in collaboration with New England cartoonists, this groundbreaking anthology provides a powerful model for exploring communities, citizenship, and survival. Marek presents some of many comics documenting human migrations and struggles throughout the ages, and leads a hands-on demo to show how YOU can cartoon the stories of your own family, neighborhood, and wider world. (No prior art experience needed — Everybody can create comics!)

Can accommodate 10-50 participants. Available for groups of all ages. School groups also available at specific grade levels.
