Vermont Reads 2022 Kickoff Discussion

Live Event
July 14, 2022: 7:00 pm

Join three people central to the creation of The Most Costly Journey for a discussion about migration, farming, mental health, cartooning, and the Latinx farmworker experience in Vermont.

Panelists include Julia Doucet from the Open Door Clinic, Andy Kolovos from the Vermont Folklife Center, and cartoonist Marek Bennett. All were deeply involved in the development of the anthology of migrant farm worker comics that became our Vermont Reads 2022 choice.

This in-person presentation will live streamed and recorded so those who can’t attend may view the discussion.

An exhibit at 118 Elliot will share images and stories from migrant workers’ journeys here and of their lives on Vermont farms, brought together from four distinct bodies of work: The Golden Cage Project (2007), Invisible Odysseys (2010), El Viaje Más Caro (2015), and a selection of paintings and sculptures by the migrant artist El Emigrante.
