Marek Bennett on the Comics Exchange Program in Nicaragua

Marek Bennett’s COMICS WORKSHOPS have provided discovery-based hands-on comics education for schools, libraries, and community organizations since 2002.  Bennett’s teaching and travel work has resulted in several graphic novels, including NICARAGUA COMICS TRAVEL JOURNAL (2009), SLOVAKIA: FALL IN THE HEART OF EUROPE (2011), and his current project with coffee-producing communities in Central America. [ www.MarekBennett.com ]
