J. K. Rowling gives a speech.

J. K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, gave the commencement address at Harvard University in June of this year. Her title was "The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination." It was a good speech, and, although other things could have been said, and there was a little of it that I would disagree with, it is well worth reading. This link is to a web page with the text of the speech, and video of Rowling's delivery.

There's some humor in the speech, some common sense, and some food for thought.

Thanks for reading. Read Rowling. The speech is a lot shorter than her books!
