Exploring Cuba Through Literature

Come together with others interested in rich conversation about Cuban culture. Together we will explore recent children's literature, including Letters from Cuba by Ruth Behar, Enchanted Air and All the Way to Havana both by Margarita Engle and Under the Royal Palms by Alma Flor Ada. The goal of this workshop is to learn more about Cuban culture, make connections to our daily work as educators and in the process, meet others who have traveled to Cuba with Bank Street and those who might be interested in traveling with us in the summer of 2022.
