    Program Description:

    Several counties across the state have added "The Time Keeper" to their classroom studies. Kevin Cropp is available for classroom visits and enrichment seminars.*

    Kevin Cropp's novel, "The Time Keeper", is a must-read for high school students. Dealing with many relevant topics, such as family conflict, reconciliation/forgiveness, dying, loss, goal/setting, conflict with teachers and girlfriends, the story of Corey Wails sets an example of persevering through tragedy. In addition to being a clean, well written novel with symbolism, strongly developed characters, thought-provoking themes, and great framing, it is a story that brings much discussion and growth into the lives of young adults. As an Advanced Placement English teacher and a Creative Writing teacher, I feel "The Time Keeper" should earn itself strong recognition for the values and examples it offers teenagers today.
    -- Laura Stavlas, AP English Teacher at Enloe High School - Raleigh, NC

    The Cumberland County AIG Program is extremely fortunate to have author Kevin Cropp present to its Academically/Intellectually Gifted students. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience first-hand Kevin's literary style which draws you in to a world of all too familiar conflict. A conflict that affects our most personal relationships and shapes us into who we are to become. Not only did Kevin share his story but he also offered students invaluable insights into the writing process.
