UNION — After a formal introduction via "Zoom-with-Vose at 6pm Wednesdays" Series on March 31 by the artist himself, Vose Library hosts an exhibit of the editorial cartoons of Douglas Coffin.

Coffin’s single-panel, black-and-white cartoons were a popular feature of the upstart Waldo Independent – a Belfast-based weekly newspaper that from 1985 to 2008 provided lively competition to the deep-rooted Republican Journal, offering an alternative perspective on local news and issues.

Coming from the Belfast Free Public Library where it has been on exhibit since March, Vose Library will host this retrospective through April 30.

Vose Library is located at 392 Common Road, in Union.
