Lucy Calkins Writing Workshops

I've heard a lot of great things about Lucy Calkins' writing workshops and I would really love to learn more. I have a few questions I'm hopind some of you could help me out with:

Which book of hers would be the most useful for an intermediate (3rd grade) teacher?

Does anyone have tips on how to implement her take on writing workshops while still teaching the 6 Traits?

I am also using the Daily 5 and CAFE in my classroom. I had been thinking about creating a 6 Traits board similar to CAFE in my classroom, where we would post strategies for each trait as we learned them. I also planned on using mini-lessons to teach the writing strategies. Do you think that could be combined with Lucy Calkins ideas?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me!
