Author Simon Calcavecchia visited Hirsch Elementary on November 19th. After suffering a broken neck in 2002 during a rugby game in Australia, Calcavecchia has used his injury to grow in ways he never imagined. Over the past decade, he has spent a tremendous amount of time working with kids and recently published his first children’s book to help share his experience with quadriplegia.
