BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – On Thursday, Oct. 6 at 6 p.m., a panel discussion about “The Most Costly Journey” will be held at the Rockingham Library. This book tells the stories of sixteen migrant workers in their own words. Illustrated by New England cartoonists, each short chapter describes life as an immigrant farmworker. Julia Doucet, a nurse who serves the healthcare needs of migrant workers will be on the panel, along with Andy Kovolos, the archivist at the Vermont Folklife Center who guided the interview process from which this book evolved. Those who can’t attend the program in person may go to the Zoom link on Oct. 6 at 6 p.m. at www.us02web.zoom.us/83284494764.
