I happened to come across some recent messages asking about quilt books on the web site archive for this group. In case no one has done so, I did want to let people know there is indeed a new book out about quilts and the underground railroad. It's by Jacqueline Tobin and Dr. Raymond Dobard and is called HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW, the Secret Story of Quilts and the Underground Railroad.
Also, for information on using my book, SWEET CLARA and the FREEDOM QUILT, in the classroom, you may want to check my home page, where I have links to underground railroad activities and lesson plans. http://whitman.edu/~hopkinda
I hope to have some activities for use with my new book, A BAND OF ANGELS, posted soon, and I am always happy to do email interviews with students. Hope this helps!
