A math and science kid, New York Times bestselling author Gordon Korman said his writing started off as a hobby. Korman visited Lugoff-Elgin Middle School last week to help inspire a love of reading and writing in every student in the classroom. Korman completed his first book at the age of 12, when his school’s track and field coach-turned English teacher told his class to “work of whatever you want” for the rest of the school year.
