Discussion Explores “The Most Costly Journey”

Share article

GREENSBORO – Greensboro Free Library will host a discussion of the current Vermont Reads selection, “The Most Costly Journey,” on Thursday, Feb. 16, at 7 p.m. The journey is one made by Vermont’s migrant farm workers who travel from southern Mexico and Central America to work on Vermont farms. Their stories were made into comics drawn by New England cartoonists, and originally produced as individual Spanish-language comic books distributed to the farm workers. This anthology collects all of the comics in one volume to help English-language readers understand the workers’ lives. Free copies of the book are now available at the library. The discussion will be held in-person and also on Zoom. All are welcome. For more information or for the Zoom link, e-mail the library at [email protected].
