This year’s Vermont Reads book selection, The Most Costly Journey, features the stories of 19 migrant farm workers in Vermont as illustrated by New England cartoonists. It was created by the El Viaje Más Caro Project.
Voices of Inclusion in Essex and Westford (VIEW), Migrant Justice, Phoenix Books, and Essex Free Library present this opportunity to gather in community and discuss The Most Costly Journey. We will discuss the book and receive a presentation from members of Migrant Justice as part of their Milk with Dignity Campaign to learn more about the rampant abuses that workers face on dairy farms and the powerful organizing they are doing to improve conditions and protect their rights.
