Those interested in hard-hitting topics such as science, politics, history and health care don’t necessarily have to turn to heavy tomes or lengthy academic articles for information. “Cartooning has exploded as a legitimate medium for exploring nonfiction topics and the textures of lived experiences,” reads the Vermont Folklife Center website. The center celebrates the genre with the third annual Nonfiction Comics Mini-Fest, held at the Saint Albans Museum. This one-day event spotlights Vermont and regional cartoonists, including Marek Bennett, Glynnis Fawkes, Kurt Shaffert and Sarah Yahm, who present on their work and craft.
