Author Kevin Kurtz Visits The Intermediate School: On Monday, November 13th, author Kevin Kurtz spoke to students at the Intermediate School. Kevin is a Homer graduate who writes non-fiction books for children. Students were excited to hear about his writing process and how he shaped two of his books, A Day in the Deep and Uncovering Earth's Secrets . Many of Kevin's books rhyme, which led one student to dub him "The Dr. Seuss of Science."
