Andy Kolovos will be speaking at North Hero Public Library on The Most Costly Journey: Latin American Migrant Workers, Health Care, and Collaborative Non Fiction Comics.
A Vermont Reads 2022 choice, The Most Costly Journey (El viaje más caro), tells the stories of 19 of these workers in their own words. Illustrated by New England cartoonists in a variety of styles, each short chapter describes aspects of life as an immigrant farm worker in Vermont: crossing the southern border, struggling with English, adapting to winter, growing gardens, raising children, dealing with health crises, and working long hours.
This talk is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities.
