Fringe Benefits of Failure

Rowling at HarvardI have listened to several dozen commencement speeches in the past quarter century, and even afflicted others with a few of my own. So trust me that J.K. Rowling’s recent Harvard address is worthwhile. You can watch the video, download and listen to the audio, or read the text. Any medium still conveys the humor and power of her message.

    Hi from the right coast. We just used this speech in a class I’m TA’ing (Public Narrative: Identity, Agency, and Action) at the Harvard Kennedy School. And I got to see it live. 😉

    Hope you are well.

    Good to hear from you, and I’m glad you got to hear her live. She hasn’t made it out to B’ville yet, for some reason!
