I had the pleasure of attending a workshop based on Tar Beach a few weeks
ago at St. Bonaventure U in NY -- Faith Ringgold was there and discussed
her work, showed slides, inspired all! The workshop seemed basically for
classroom teachers who want to use the book as a way to integrate arts into
their curriculum (social studies, mainly, but also science and language
arts, etc.). The gallery there also had many of her works on display. She
really is quite a visionary!
